Speak to experts about the latest Featherston flood modelling

Flooding in Featherston is likely to increase in the future due to climate change, so understanding food risk is more important than ever. Recent community feedback has also highlighted the importance of ensuring everyone understands this risk.

This month, Wellington Water are running two community drop-in sessions where you can learn about the latest projects to understand flooding in Featherston. You can also play an active role in ensuring that the latest flood models are as accurate as possible, by sharing your observations and photos of previous flooding on the day.

Here’s the details of these free community events, which are open to all members of the public:

First Session
Date: Saturday 13 May 2023
Time: 8am until 1.30pm
Location: Featherston Weekly Markets, 33 Fitzherbert St, Featherston

Second Session
Date: Thursday 18 May 2023
Time: 7pm – 9pm
Location: ANZAC Hall, 62 Bell St, Featherston

If you have any questions about these events or stormwater flooding, please get in touch with Wellington Water by emailing: communications@wellingtonwater.co.nz.
