Change to Water Supply Charges for 2020/2021

26 May 2020

Waikato District Council has installed nearly 8,000 water meters in Raglan, Huntly, and Ngaruawahia over the last four years. Because some meters are more complex to install than others, there are 181 properties around the district connected to Council’s water supply without a water meter. 

Council is proposing to re-instate a Temporary Water Rate of $335.59 last charged in the 2017/2018 rating year on 1 July 2020 for properties that are connected to Council supply but have no water meter that can calculate a volumetric charge for water use. This means that the unmetered properties’ water supply charges will be made up of two parts: their usual fixed Targeted Rate, as well as the Temporary Water Rate (instead of a volumetric charge based off of use).

Waikato District Council invites feedback on this change to water supply charges, and will contact all 181 properties affected by the change directly.
