Northlanders could find themselves thrown in with Auckland’s Watercare, as New Zealand’s biggest-ever restructure of drinking water, wastewater and stormwater management plays out, RNZ reports. Billions of dollars of water provision infrastructure across Northland’s four councils could be jointly in the fold with a new supersized company also including Auckland Watercare’s corresponding assets. The shift would be part of a national three waters change that will also fundamentally alter local government. However, there is much debate over whether and how Auckland would or wouldn’t be involved in the national restructure that would cubsequently happen, and which current council entities might or might not combine with it.
