This is how we're responding in Timaru.

Flood protection

Climate projections show the Timaru district can expect more intense rainfall and an increased frequency of flooding.

As part of the recovery from the 2019 Rangitata flood, Environment Canterbury received a climate resilience grant for new flood protection, erosion control infrastructure and tree planting. This will include a natural infrastructure programme focusing on planting, weed control, and wetland and mahinga kai enhancement.
