Website Expanded to show Annual Compliance

From 1 March 2005, this drinking-water database will show results from the Annual Review of Drinking-Water Quality in New Zealand 2003. (see it on the Ministry of Health website. The format closely follows that of showing the Register structure for each supply: in other words, find the supply via its community name or by clicking a map, and view the supply structure with its compliance summarised.

Why not Compliance for 2004?

The website can only show details for what has been publicly released by the Ministry of Health, and they in turn can only release an Annual Review after the review process has been completed.


This process includes: data gathered and reported by water suppliers, audited by HPOs, consolidated in National WINZ, validated, analysed and reported to the Ministry (by Andrew Ball at ESR), further analysis and discussion with relevant bodies by the Ministry, printing and release.

The Annual Review 2003 was released to the public on 1 March 2005. When the 2004 Review is released in another 12 months or so, its data will replace that currently showing on the website.

Differences between the Annual Review and its presentation on this website

While the data is fundamentally the same, the following differences in the detail presented should be noted:
