North Canterbury and Kaikoura Landslide Dams

The 14 November 2016 earthquake and subsequent aftershocks have led to numerous landslide dams being formed in North Canterbury and Kaikoura rivers and streams.

Rainfall associated with Ex Tropical Cyclone Debbie over 4 – 6 April 2017 caused many of the dams being monitored by Environment Canterbury to partially or fully breach. Up-to-date information on the landslide dams is available here.
