The stormwater network keeps people and property safe from flooding.
What we do
Management of the stormwater network protects residents and property from flooding. Without this service, Wellington could not operate as a modern, efficient city.
- Global stormwater consent – we will continue to improve the quality of stormwater collected from the city’s urban environment and discharged into Wellington’s streams and coastal waters. This programme includes the development of integrated catchment management plans, cultural and ecological impact assessments, investigation of key polluting sites (such as Davis Street and Houghton Bay) as well as public education campaigns.
Measuring our performanceTop
Our targets for 2013/14 are:
- 75% of residents agree that stormwater services provide good value for money
- 85% of customers are satisfied with the stormwater network service

- No properties (buildings) are flooded as a result of a less than 1-in-50-year rain event
- 95% of bathing beaches comply with the Ministry of Environment guidelines (green status)
- Stormwater networks comply with resource consents (includes the monitoring of overflows, stormwater outfall discharge monitoring and coastal water quality monitoring)
