Buller District Council

Westport Flood Protection Options

12th January, 2017

The West Coast Regional Council is now seeking your feedback on the options to provide flood protection for Westport. This is the chance to have your say.

The Buller River has the largest flood flow of any river in New Zealand, yet Westport currently has very limited flood protection structures. Located next to the river itself, there is a risk of flooding, and depending on its extent, potential for significant damage to property, infrastructure and even threat to life.
