Consents for medical treatment and number of water supplies you have disconnected

Erika Whittome made this Official Information request to Watercare Services Limited

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Watercare Services Limited should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Erika Whittome

Dear Watercare Services Limited,

I understand that you are adding a medical treatment to the Auckland water supply. A recent high court decision asked that the Director General of Health consider the New Zealand Bill of Rights 1990 ( .

The director general is required by law to consider the Bill of Rights before he/she issues the directives.

As Watercare is also a crown owned agency, it too must consider the Bill of Rights 1990.

1 Would you kindly share the number of consents from consumers that you have received for agreeing to receive medical treatment in the water you supply?

2. For the past year, how many water connections have disconnected for non-payment of water?

Yours faithfully,

Erika Whittome
