Have your say on managing stormwater to reduce pollution

Wellington Water is inviting you to have your say on a draft strategy for reducing the discharge of pollution from the urban stormwater networks in Porirua, Wellington, Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt. 

The draft Stormwater Management Strategy focuses on removing contamination at source, and planning improvements at a sub-catchment (suburb or neighbourhood) level. You can read more about it here

To help you understand the strategy, ask questions and provide feedback, Wellington Water is hosting three public workshops in February, two online and one in-person as follows:

  • 14 February 11:30-1:00pm (online) 
  • 15 February 12:00-1:30pm (online)
  • 16 February 5:30pm-7.30pm at Rutherford House, Mezzanine Level RHMZ2, Victoria University of Wellington, Pipitea campus, 33 Bunny Street.


If you’re keen to attend, please RSVP to by Friday 10 February, letting us know which workshop you want to attend, and we will send an electronic notification with all the necessary details.
