Taumata Arowai is aspiring to higher outcomes for wai and tangata, water and people, in Aotearoa.

Until Taumata Arowai is fully operational, the Ministry of Health will remain the regulator for drinking water safety.

Who looks after your water?

Most people are on a water supply owned by either their district or city council, or water management company such as Water Care in Auckland and Wellington Water. This should be your first point of contact if you have questions or concerns.

For more information on registered water suppliers see the Ministry of Health website.

Your regional Public Health Unit should also be able to provide advice.
