About this report

The Waikato Regional Council (WRC) manages the flood protection and river management assets (e.g. stopbanks, floodwalls, floodgates, rock revetments and associated river structures and works) along the Tongariro River. Together, these assets and works are designed to provide protection against floods up to a 1%AEP event. To ensure service level delivery the assets and works are monitored and surveyed and their performance assessed regularly.
