Water Safety Plan NZ

Why do I need a Water Safety Plan?

Under the New Zealand Water Service Bill (2020), anyone or any business that is more than a single domestic water supplier is considered a commercial water operator. The Health Act 1956 requires certain drinking-water suppliers to draw up a Water Safety Plan NZ (WSP)  for their water supply. It is a critical tool in ensuring safe drinking water in New Zealand.

First of all, the water safety plan is a legal requirement. But more important, it primarily provides you with an overview of what to do in emergencies. Thus, it is an essential guideline for managing the event. There are various objectives of a water safety plan. First, it identifies health hazards and risks that may occur from the Point of Entry (POE) to the Point of Use (POU) in your water system. Second, it helps to comply with legal limits to take measures when a critical point is reached.

How do I know that I need a water safety plan?

Suppose you are rural and on rainwater or bore water. And you are considered a commercial water supplier under the New Zealand Water Service Bill (2020). In this case, you must submit a water safety plan. This also applies if your business is involved in food production, such as a winery, distillery or dairy.

However, this legal requirement of providing a water safety plan also affects you when you are on mains water. And you have issues with chlorine/chemicals in your provided drinking water for your customers. As soon as you are considered commercial like a café, school or rest homes, you will need to complete a water safety plan to comply with the future Water Service Act.
