Your Customer Journey

We work with our client councils to manage and deliver the three water services around the region.

Most of the work we do involves us directly interacting with you, our customer.

Whilst you experience the 'front-end ' of this interaction, a lot is going on 'behind-the-scenes' between your local council, Wellington Water and our contractors, to carry-out this work. So, we wanted to show you the process.

This is your customer journey, and it outlines what you can expect when you interact with your local council, Wellington Water, or a contractor.
