Drinking Water

Drinking Water

If an event (for more than 24 people) is offering the public drinking water that is not commercially bottled, and you are not a self-supply, then it may require permission from the Medical Officer of Health to be used. The event organiser will need to check by contacting their local Drinking Water Team (DWT) based at Nelson Marlborough District Health Board's Public Health Service (NMDHB PHS).
