Drinking Water Testing

The Drinking Water Standards for New Zealand are the government issued regulatory requirements for the consumption of drinking water. Drinking water quality will vary greatly depending on rainfall run-off and the land use of the surrounding catchment. It is always advisable to check whether your drinking water meets the requirements of the Water Services (Drinking Water Standards for New Zealand) Regulations 2022. This is especially important as water quality is largely impacted by the local environment and can be impacted by contaminants such as nitrates and E. coliWe are an IANZ accredited Drinking Water laboratory allowing us to perform testing to meet the requirements of the Drinking Water Quality Assurance Rules 2022.
