Looking after your backyard – Flood protection at its best!

03/09/2019 at 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

Come along and learn about the Waimakariri Flood Protection Project, a 10-year undertaking that protects Christchurch and other areas from the huge floods that could occur in the river.

The $40 million project has developed a comprehensive stopbank system to control the biggest floods, based on extensive research and modelling of climate events.

The presentation will be given by Leigh Griffiths (River Engineering Manager) and Ian Heslop (Senior River Engineer) from Environment Canterbury.

Everyone is welcome to attend and if you can’t make the event we’ll be broadcasting a live stream from our facebook page. We’ll also be taking questions from our live audience.
