Watercare releases Annual Report 2017

Watercare releases Annual Report 2017

The Watercare Annual Report 2017 is now available online. The report summarises Watercare’s performance against the objectives set out in our statement of intent and provides an insight into our operations during the 2016/17 financial year.

Addressing the theme of “meeting the demands of change and growth”, the report highlights why Watercare plans for the unexpected. The Tasman Tempest storm in March dumped unprecedented levels of rain and silt into the catchment that supplies most of the city’s water. The subsequent impact on water production sent our teams into action as they worked hard to maintain Auckland’s water supply.

The event proved Watercare’s resilience, and demonstrated the capability of both our water supply system and our people, as well as Aucklanders’ willingness to heed our call and reduce water consumption. It was also a reminder that Watercare fulfils its obligations as a lifeline provider in a volatile, uncertain world, evident in the reliable supply of ‘Aa’-graded drinking water to Auckland 100% of the time.

The report provides both the strategic view of the business and the more detailed aspects of our day-to-day functioning. It describes how Watercare is turning to technology and innovation, while we realign our culture and organisation.

Sam Uffindell’s defenders keep reminding us that he was only 16 at the time of the King’s College incident, and haven’t we all done things in our teens that, as adults, we look back on with shame and embarrassment? True. Let's be honest. Haven’t we all at one time or another, joined a gang and beaten a smaller, younger kid black and blue with wooden clubs? In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference. OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...
