Stormwater Management Framework

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We're changing how we look at and manage our stormwater, so we can manage growth, respond to climate change, protect community health and wellbeing, and care for our waters.

Essentially, we need to find a way to live better with more water, urban development and growth.

Our revised Stormwater Management Framework needs to:

  • protect and restore te mana o te wai - the health and well-being of our water
  • ensure people's safety and wellbeing during and after storm events
  • minimise the impacts of stormwater management on the health and wellbeing of our water
  • recognise the many functions of water, including stormwater management and its impacts
  • comply with new statutory requirements
