Author: Megan Wood (Wainui Consulting Limited)

About this report

The purpose of this Design Report is to provide a summary of the works that have been undertaken at Te Puru to reduce the flood hazard from the Te Puru Stream, including the rationale behind the scheme development, the agreed levels of service, the design details, as built information, the operation and maintenance requirements of the scheme, the residual flood risk and the scheme review requirements.

The Design Report includes the following sections:

  • Catchment overview
  • Hydrological assessment
  • Hydraulic model development
  • Flood protection scheme
  • Agreed levels of service
  • Operation and maintenance
  • Flood hazard assessment
  • Residual flood risk
  • Planning controls, and
  • Scheme review.
