Capacity has released the Regional Standard for Water Services, a collaborative effort with the Hutt, Wellington, Upper Hutt, and Porirua city councils.
The regional standard consolidates engineering standards for stormwater, wastewater and water supply infrastructure in the four cities.
The standard is intended for use with new infrastructure in subdivisions and for replacements in existing areas. It aims to ensure all work done on water networks complies with the Council’s objectives and performance criteria for the network. It should be read in conjunction with the Council’s existing development codes.
