South Wairarapa District Council today voted to join Wellington Water as a shareholder and become a client of its three waters management services.

Wellington Water is jointly owned by five councils in the Wellington region, the Hutt, Porirua, Upper Hutt and Wellington city councils, and Greater Wellington Regional Council.

It was established in 2014 to provide value to councils and communities through taking a regional, long term approach to planning for water services, building a centre of excellence, and identifying efficiencies in service provision with a focus on customers.

Mayor Viv Napier said Council’s decision was a positive step for the community.
