Stormwater recommendations endorsed by Christchurch City Council

Over the past two years the Christchurch West Melton zone committee has been working collaboratively on how to deal with the impact of stormwater on urban waterways.

The committee recently presented its recommendations for improving urban stormwater management to the Christchurch City Council.

The Council has agreed to consider funding non-structural stormwater management solutions to reduce the impact of stormwater on urban waterways.

These solutions include developing stormwater management awareness campaigns with the community and businesses, and setting targets for improving the quality of water going in and out of the system.
