The Auditor-General has decided to include a watch of New Zealand's water management in his coming work programme. From the Auditor-General's report:
Introducing our work programme - Water management.
... Starting in 2017/18, we will look at water management activity in several organisations, focusing on drinking water, freshwater, stormwater, and the marine environment.
We intend to provide independent assurance to Parliament, the organisations that we audit, and New Zealanders about the state of water management. We will highlight any improvements that are needed in the public management of water and in the accountability and transparency of organisations for their decision-making and performance.
At the end of our work on water management, we will produce a report that draws together our observations and recommendations.
