Heathcote catchment

Earthquake damage to land and infrastructure alongside the Heathcote River has led to increased severity of flooding.

Properties adjacent to the Heathcote River were noted by the Mayoral Flood Taskforce as being second most significant cluster of post-earthquake flooding after the Flockton area.

The Heathcote River Flood Protection Programme is investigating options to restore flood risk to pre-earthquake levels.
