Temporary Drinking Water Supplies
If you are planning an event such as a festival, sports event, market day, or other organised event where you intend to supply drinking water, you need to comply with the Water Services Act 2021.
You can use a registered drinking water supply, which includes using a registered water carrier. In these situations, the owner and operator of the registered drinking water supply are responsible for ensuring the drinking water supplied complies with the Act. You could also consider providing bottled water.
If you don’t want to use either of the above options, you will need to apply to Taumata Arowai for registration of a temporary drinking water supply.
