Potable water services are provided to the population of 1.2m residents in the Auckland region of New Zealand by one wholesaler and six retailers. Forecasts for water demand suggest that a major new resource will be required by 2025 but that resource has not been identified at this time. Water efficiency techniques could defer this major capital investment. The paper discusses the region's water industry and the strategic investigations into water efficient alternatives to date.
