Current works

Flood protection and drainage works scaled back due to COVID19 alert level 4
Now that we are in Alert level 4, Environment Canterbury has scaled back all non-essential flood protection and drainage work in our riverbeds. We will be completing works that protect life, homes and critical infrastructure only. All of our flood prediction tools, rain gauges, and river flow gauges will continue to operate as an Essential Service.
