Flood protection schemes are designed to provide flood protection and drainage improvements within identified sections of flood plains of rivers. Schemes consist primarily of stopbanks, pump stations, floodgates, and river channel improvement works.

Flood protection within Project Watershed comprises the Lower Waikato Waipa Control Scheme, the Lower Tongariro River Scheme, the Tauranga-Taupo River Scheme, Otorohanga, and several local community works and schemes. These are discussed within their respective management zones.
