Coil of green pipes

That stormwater can contain contaminants such as oils, paints, detergents, litter, animal droppings and, after heavy rainfall, sewage. The environmental impacts of stormwater runoff are monitored, and generally comply with resource consents and environmental standards.

In the next three years, we will introduce real-time monitoring of the stormwater network. This will enable us to measure flows of stormwater and pollutants into waterways, and allow us to manage flows when stormwater is causing environmental harm.

When?

Within the next 3 years.

How much?

We have budgeted $14.6 million for this work over the 10 years of the Long-term Plan.
