Wellington Water is currently reviewing and revising the Regional Standard and Specification. The draft versions have been released and feedback is now being collated and assessed. Final versions will be will be available prior to the end of 2021.

The Regional Standard for Water Services - May 2019 provides a regionally consistent method of design and implementation of stormwater, wastewater and water supply services to meet the outcomes of: safe and healthy water, respectful of the environment and resilient networks support our economy. The document provides minimum standards for the design and construction of proposed three waters infrastructure that will be vested in council, and to the maintenance, renewal, upgrade or decommissioning of existing public infrastructure.

The Regional Standard for Water Services (RSWS) is to be used in conjunction with the Regional Specification for Water Services- May 2019  (R.Spec), which contains the minimum technical specifications for the materials, construction, installation, testing and commissioning of the stormwater, wastewater and water supply networks.
