National Party local government spokesman Christopher Luxon says the Three Waters reforms would be under serious threat if Auckland pulls-out, Stuff reports. The Government wants to create four publicly owned providers to take responsibility for all services relating to the country’s “three waters”: drinking water, wastewater and stormwater. But Auckland Mayor Phil Goff isn’t keen on Watercare becoming part of the proposed structure. Far North Mayor John Carter also has serious reservations about the Government’s planned changes, while Whangārei District Council has already opted out of the process.
