Public council drainage in Auckland’s Papakura district is maintained and operated by Veolia, rather than Watercare who manage the rest of Auckland. In 2021, Drainage NZ became a Veolia approved contractor, earning the ability to provide wastewater services to the Papakura district public assets. Meaning the team at Drainage NZ is registered to providing public council drainage to the entirety of the greater Auckland region.
