Taumata Arowai

Taumata Arowai will replace the Ministry of Health as the water services regulator for Aotearoa. They will ensure all communities have access to safe drinking water and they have an oversight role in protecting the environment from the impacts of waste and stormwater.

Taumata Arowai will become fully operational following the commencement of the Water Services Act, expected to be in the second half of 2021.
