Three Waters reforms


  • On 13 April, the government announced it was changing its plans for the country’s Three Waters services.
  • It scrapped the plan for four big water services entities across the country in favour of 10 regional groups.
  • They extended the timeframe by two years to make the change in July 2026.
  • The new plan proposes a separate Three Waters Taranaki entity spanning New Plymouth, Stratford and South Taranaki districts.
  • The government says it will be owned by the councils.
  • NPDC will continue to deliver on our 10-Year Plan in the meantime.
