Council maintains a number of stormwater and drainage systems which provide adequate capacity to dispose of stormwater to prevent undue nuisance and disturbance or damage to property.
Council maintains a number of open drains into the town areas of Waipukurau and Waipawa. These are maintained as part of Council’s normal functions. Council expects the maintenance of other open drains to be carried out by the landowner. Storm water connections must be installed by a contractor approved by the Council for installation of storm water connections.
An application must be completed and approved by Council before any action by an approved contractor. New connections are charged directly to the customer by the contractor.
The application form is available in the Related Documents section below.
