Water Working Party

Water is a precious resource, so Council has established a Water Working Party – it is essential that we have a viable and sustainable water supply system to meet current and future needs.

The working party brings together representatives from key stakeholder organisations, including Horowhenua District Council, Horizons Regional Council, MidCentral District Health Board, iwi, Department of Conservation, Federated Farmers, relevant government departments, Tararua Growers Association, and community members. It will have an independent chair.

The working party will have input into future Council decision-making on water supply issues, recommend commissioning technical reports as required, review the findings of those reports, and make recommendations to Council.
