How did you work out the level of flood protection for Te Awa Kairangi ki Tai - Lower Hutt City? And will it work?

The flood protection works designed to protect Te Awa Kairangi ki Tai - Lower Hutt are part of the Hutt River Floodplain Management Plan, developed by Greater Wellington, Upper Hutt and Hutt City Councils, and the community, in 2001. The height and size of the flood defences (called the 'design standard') are part of the plan. Planning flood defences were agreed (called the 'design standard'). It gives us an indication of the maximum protection that our structural flood protection system can provide.
