Applicants Sought for Drainage and Water Advisory Groups

Published: 04-Nov-2019

Have you considered becoming a member of a Drainage or Water Race Advisory Group? Or perhaps you know someone who might fit the bill? It’s a great opportunity to get involved and make a valuable contribution to your local community and the wider district.

The group provides local knowledge and input into the Council’s management of rural water races and drainage and meets three times a year.

They give advice to the Council on maintenance and development and make recommendations on annual budgets and the monitoring of maintenance works.

There are a number of advisory groups across the district and we are seeking nominations for new members to join the following:

  • Clarkville Rural Drainage Advisory Group
  • Central Rural Drainage Advisory Group
  • Coastal Rural Drainage Advisory Group
  • Ohoka Rural Drainage Advisory Group
  • Oxford Rural Drainage Advisory Group
  • Waimakariri Water Race Advisory Group

The groups typically cover the rural areas of the district where drainage rates are collected for maintenance and capital projects. For further clarification of the areas covered, please contact Dan Lewis at the Waimakariri District Council.
