More than ever, signatures are needed to hold the new Taumata Arowai development to account for a new implementation of drinking water regulations.

The Government is set to be proposing the idea of a new water regulator called Taumata Arowai — the regulations will put ‘responsibilities’ toward the Government than having councils to manage drinking water, sewage, and stormwater catchments.

The Three Waters Reform's name puts all developments of water-related systems under Government, blaming farmers for the issues not being resolved. Councils in-charge for the last two decades have done not much to implement water management.

The new development follows a new study that found up to 800,000 New Zealanders health could potentially be at risk of bowel cancer from drinking water around the country following high levels of Nitrates.

thisquality Founder Sam Hudson of thisquality interviewed Freshwater Ecologist Dr Mike Joy from Victoria University in Wellington about the Government-run ‘3 Waters’ agenda; on how it really is not going to work specifically.

Greenpeace started a petition to ‘drop the Nitrate limits' in regards to the mismanagement of water for the last two decades. Asking that change must be made immediately.
