    The Green Party says the Government should hit the pause button on its Three Waters reforms... to fully address concerns from councils and communities

    The Green Party says the Government should hit the pause button on its Three Waters reforms... to fully address concerns from councils and communities


    The Government's confirmed it's pushing ahead with creating four regional water entities for drinking, waste and storm water.

    The Greens' Eugenie Sage says there's little in today's announcement that'll reassure councils they can shape the new system in a way that works for their communities.

    She says they'd like an improved governance model, and more than the four proposed entities, so communities are closer to decisions on their water services.
