Overseeing the provision and maintenance of stormwater systems.


Stormwater is rainwater running off hard surfaces - roofs, walls, driveways, roadside drains, gutters, sumps - eventually entering streams, rivers and waterways.

Council oversees the provision and maintenance of reliable reticulated stormwater systems, which protect public health, property, safety, the environment and recognises cultural values whilst realising current financial constraints both now and in the future.

External contractors undertake all maintenance and projects in terms of contract specifications overseen by the Asset Supervisor.

Resource consents for stormwater discharge at Tekapo and Twizel were approved in 2005.
