Drinking Water

Havelock North’s drinking water contamination event resulted in the formation of the new water regulator, Taumata Arowai. The creation of the Water Services Act and the Drinking Water Supply Operational Compliance Rules outlines the responsibilities of water suppliers to their customers.

Isaac’s inhouse drinking water team can provide guidance and advice on the drinking water supplier regulations and best practise. We can support community drinking water suppliers with;

  • Source water identification and analysis.

  • Source water characteristic sampling.

  • Water treatment plant development and installation. 

  • Water treatment plant monitoring, servicing and management. 

  • Online monitoring and reporting. 

  • Development of water safety planning and risk management. 

  • A comprehensive Operations and Maintenance Manual. 

  • Drinking water safety training and awareness. 

Our highest level of support includes a full wrap around service, that ensures community drinking water is monitored from the source to the tap. Speak with our drinking water team to discuss this comprehensive option further.
