ABB Assists New Zealand's Watercare in Meeting New Fluoride Monitoring Regulations

ABB and Water Engineers Limited were contracted by the largest water and wastewater utility company in New Zealand, Watercare, to install and commission ABB Aztec AFM631 Fluoride Analyzers in its water treatment plants in Auckland. 

The aim was to meet new regulations requiring all New Zealand water governing bodies to monitor fluoride levels in their facilities by 2024. 

Watercare sources, treats, supplies, and disposes of water across Auckland and is also responsible for managing the city's water infrastructure.

“Our goal was to have 10 Fluoride Analyzers installed and working before the end of 2023 so that we could meet our new legal obligations set by Taumata Arowai, NZ’s water regulator, that required all water governing bodies to monitor fluoride levels in their drinking water from 2024 onwards,” said Sheila Brown, Senior Commissioning Specialist, Instrumentation and Control, Watercare.

“We needed a trusted partner that had the technical expertise and could deliver and commission safe, reliable, quality fluoride analyzers that would allow us to meet our legal requirements.” 

The ABB Aztec AFM631 Fluoride Analyzer effectively protects against unsafe fluoridation of drinking water via continuous, accurate, and reliable online monitoring. The analyzer provides a safeguard against fluoride overdosing, precise control of water fluoridation, and proof of legislative compliance.

By utilizing ABB’s highly reliable and accurate fluoride analyzers and on-site technical support, Watercare completed the project on time and met its legal obligations.

The team now has a low-maintenance, easy-to-use, high-quality tool to ensure the safe fluoridation of Auckland’s drinking water.
