Contribution to outcomes
- We minimise risks to human life and health from flooding by responding efficiently and effectively to flooding issues and we maintain, repair and renew major flood protection and control works
- We comply with our resource consent conditions and our stormwater systems do not harm the downstream receiving environment.
We plan to spend an average per year of $5.9 million on operations and $4.5 million on capital work for stormwater.
