Regional priorities

Wellington Water takes a regional approach to our work. That means we take into account what’s best for the whole region as we plan and advise our client councils on managing and developing our water network. After all, pipes, rivers and streams span the region, and our citizens live, work and play across the region, too.

We’ve identified four projects as our most important priorities to provide value-for-money, best practice water management for our region.

Our four priorities are:

  1. Water supply resilience – agreeing levels of service for water supply following a major natural event and developing investment plans for councils in time for their 2018 Long Term Plans
  2. Developing a regional asset management plan for water infrastructure
  3. A coordinated and consistent approach to community education programmes about the three waters across the region
  4. Supporting Whaitua committees so they can make informed decisions about managing the region’s catchments
