This line shows the limit of flooding from the Whangamarino Wetland and Lake Waikare in Te Kauwhata. This is a site specific layer derived from the Te Kauwhata storm water catchment management plan prepared be Beca Infrastructure Ltd (July 2009). This is a dataset derived from hydrological model. The inputs variables and assumptions for the model are not know. These data are not scheduled for review.
This is based on output of storm water models and should be used to ensure people and property are protected from storm water related events. This flood limit is located between the Whangamarino Wetland and Lake Waikare and due to its proximity to these water bodies, includes land that is subject to a flood hazard. Flood limits have been identified through the Te Kauwhata Catchment Management Plan. This layer shows the 1% Annual Exceedance Probability (AEP) design flood extents in an area influenced by the lake, the wetland, the Waikato River and a complex flood scheme. A specialist assessment will still be required for any development to ensure floor levels are the appropriate height above flood water. Relates to the implementation of the District Plan under the Resource Management Act (1991), and may be subject to various limitations and conditions. These features are a spatial representation of the policies and objectives of the Waikato District Plan and indicate where policies, overlays and District Plan rules apply.
