Three Waters Reform

Central Government is proposing to reform the delivery of Three Waters across New Zealand.

Three Waters includes drinking water, waste water and storm water. Here in Rangitīkei, these services are delivered by Manawatū District Council under a shared services agreement with Rangitīkei District Council. The services provided are funded through rates.

At the request of Central Government, Rangitīkei District Council is considering if we participate in the reform process, or how we participate in the event Central Government mandate us to do so

All Councils in New Zealand have until the end of September to provide feedback and to raise any issues or concerns with Central Government.

Our Mayor and Councillors are keen for you to understand the impact on the Rangitīkei District. We've created this page to help inform you, and we ask that you share your feedback with us via our survey.

The reform process is ongoing, and as updates are made available, they will be posted here.
