A more resilient city – managing flood risk in Lower Hutt

Wellington Water Ltd is modelling the likely impacts of extreme rainfall on the urban areas of Lower Hutt.

Flood mapping public information sessions

Wellington Water has produced draft stormwater flood maps for urban Lower Hutt, and Greater Wellington Regional Council has developed draft river flood maps for the city.

We're taking maps of previous flood events and some new draft flood maps to communities across the city for residents to view, ask questions and learn more about how natural hazards can be managed through the district plan - Lower Hutt's rule book for land use and development.

We also need people to share their memories and photos of past flood events so we can use this information to make the final maps as accurate as possible.

The stormwater flood hazard maps can be found here.

Greater Wellington's river flood hazard maps can be accesssed from this page.

We're also keen to talk to you and hear your views on other natural hazards, like earthquakes and slips. For more information and to have your say, go here. 

Maps and more information about a range of other natural hazards like earthquakes can be found here.
