Three waters - have your say

three waters1

It is now time for the people of Hawke’s Bay to have their say directly to Government on how they think drinking water, wastewater and stormwater (Three Waters) should be managed.

It has been well-publicised that the Government is proposing big changes to the way three waters services are delivered. It is planning to have the services managed by four entities across New Zealand. Hawke’s Bay will be in an entity that looks after the East Coast, Wellington, the top of the South Island, and the Chatham Islands.

This is a move that will affect everyone in Hawke’s Bay – residents, organisations and businesses – those of us here now as well as our future generations to come.

With Government set to begin introducing its two stages of legislation to make these changes happen – over the next few months it’s up to the whole of Parliament to decide whether the changes become law or not.

As part of that process, they are calling on New Zealanders for their views, for or against.

Feedback closes on July 22.
