Ross Conserve Water update 2

Ross Conserve Water update 2

5 March 2020

Efforts have been made to increase the flow from the creek to the water intake with contractors manually digging out at the affected part of the creek. These efforts have had minimal effect to the water flow. Council is working with DoC and contractors to develop a plan to take excavating machinery to the site to do the necessary work. As the land is conservation estate, the plan has to be approved by DoC before work can commence.

Community Outcomes - Social / Cultural

You may have missed speaking to Council in person, but you can still have your say on Council’s proposed Community Outcome for Social / Cultural wellbeing. 

Our online survey is available here and is open until 16 March.

Council would like to thank members of the Ross community for their efforts to conserve water.

Media release - Pump upgrade

24 February 2020

Tancred Street pump upgrade underway

Hokitika experienced unexpected flash flooding on Friday 21 February with 40mm of rain falling in just 20 minutes. The volume of water caused surface flooding around town before the town’s pump system began operating. Westroads mobilised quickly and found the stormwater pump stations were operating correctly throughout the town. Businesses around Tancred Street are known to have experienced issues due to the surface flooding.
