Design of the stormwater system
Hoahoatia he pūnaha wai āwha
What the stormwater system design needs to address
The design of the stormwater system needs to address:
- the Auckland Council standards, including the requirements of the regional National Discharge Consent (NDC)
- environmental requirements
- minimisation of flood risk to life and property
- service life, maintenance risks and costs.
Stormwater Code of Practice
This guideline document sets the standards for designing and constructing:
- public stormwater assets
- assets to be
vested to the council.
The code of practice is available on the
Auckland Design Manual website.
