Draft revision of the Regional Standard for Water Services and the Regional Specification for Water Services
Updated 26 May 2021
The Regional Standard for Water Services (RSWS) incorporates the Regional Specification for Water Services (R.Spec). Together, these two documents describe the minimum standards and specifications for the design and construction of stormwater, wastewater and water supply systems that will be vested in councils in the Wellington Region. The documents also include provisions for new connections to the networks as well as for maintenance, upgrade, renewal, and decommissioning of existing council infrastructure.
The standards and specifications provide a consistent method of design and construction for water services so that publicly owned assets are of good quality and fit for purpose. The RSWS and the R.Spec act as the “instructions” for how three waters networks are designed, constructed, operated and maintained.
