MP Mahuta has misled Councils on 3 Waters takeover

I have made my submission to 3 Waters Committee Members:

The Water Services Entities Bill and the Three Waters reforms have been foisted on our Councils without any consultation or pre-election warning.

The 3 Waters takeover is un-Democratic, and puts governance in the hands of people with no local institutional knowledge of individual water systems that are vastly different say for Christchurch which is artesian and level, and Dunedin which is distant rainfall collected and distributed over many hills with wildly varying pressure gradients in different locations.

3 Waters have evolved locally over a hundred years to respond to the particular needs and expectations of local people who are best able to demand local accountability for water systems spending and quality.
