New Zealand’s new Drinking Water Standards, Quality Assurance Rules, and Aesthetic Values which were published earlier this year are now current, having come into effect on 14 November 2022.  The 14th of November was also the commencement date for the Drinking Water Acceptable Solutions for roof, spring, bore and mixed use rural water supplies.  

The new standards and rules have been discussed in previous Hill News articles, along with the requirements for laboratories that are testing for drinking water.  You can review these articles here:
