Waitaramoa and Portland Reserve upgrade

COVID-19 Waitaramoa and Portland Reserve upgrade information

​Due to COVID-19 and our current financial situation, this project is on hold until further notice.

What the project is about

The Waitaramoa Wetland Enhancement is a year-long project by the Healthy Waters department at Auckland Council.

What the project will do

  • We’ll reduce minor flooding events by clearing sediment from the stream and removing blockages.
  • We’ll improve the ecology of the area by creating new ecological features and planting 20,000 native plants.
  • We will also be removing some willows, non-native trees and mangroves, as the roots are causing further blockages in the channel.
