Water Interest Levels High

Water New Zealand’s customer survey closed last week with the response numbers significantly exceeding expectation.

WaterRippleIn what was the first-ever survey of its type, nearly 5000 New Zealanders, including residents from the Waimakariri, took the opportunity to have their say on a range of water-related topics.

The type of feedback received ranged from the service customers receive from their utility company through to issues about quality, ownership of assets and future concerns.

Water New Zealand is grateful for the response received, and thanks all of those who took the time to take part.

The survey will provide sound information for water services providers to help inform planning and strategic development, as well as identifying areas where improvements can be made.

Analysis of the data is currently underway.

The key results will be presented at the New Zealand Water Conference and Expo in Hamilton in September.
