Drinking Water for New Zealand
Managed by ESR for the Ministry of Health. Data extracted from the National WINZ Database.
In 2005 the Government announced a new $150 million programme to assist small drinking-water supplies in providing safe water to their communities. The programme will run for 10 years.
To ensure funds go to the areas of greatest need, this initiative has two major components, TAP and CAP:
TAP, the Technical Assistance Programme, trains and assists communities to improve their own supplies.
CAP, the Capital Assistance Programme, will help fund improvements where TAP participation has shown that local resourcing is inadequate for a good solution.
