This page is to keep you informed about what the Council is doing in the district to alleviate major flooding problems.
Parts of the Waimakariri District experienced significant flooding in June 2014. On 10 and 11 June 180 mm of rain fell - this is about a third of the average annual rainfall. At that time the underground water table was at its highest level since 1978.
A number of meetings were held for flood affected residents to discuss the issues arising out of the flooding and talk through the approach and progress the Council is making in addressing these issues.
As a result of the flooding in June 2014, the Council put together a flood team whose sole focus has been to address flood issues across the district, both historical and recent. The team consists of a number of external experts supported by Council engineers whose time has been dedicated to those issues. Urgent works have been completed, however effective flood mitigation measures are likely to be a long term process involving significant drainage programmes.

Some areas were identified as needing immediate action:
The Council approved funding of over $4 million dollars for immediate works and investigations in 2014. Construction work was carried out in a number of these immediate works high priority areas in 2014 and a number of works continued until June 2016.
Further funding of $16.09 million has been allocated in the Long Term Plan (LTP) for flood mitigation and protection in the district over the next ten years (2015-2025). the funding of this work will be through both the existing urban drainage rate for infrastructure related works and the general rate for flooding related work in the rural areas.
