The Stormwater Management Guidelines provide a common reference point for the design and management of stormwater systems in Tauranga, highlighting the low impact design (LID) approach. They also provide background information on the effects of stormwater runoff, Council's stormwater systems and receiving environments and the regulatory and policy frameworks for stormwater management.
The Guidelines are supplementary to, and should be read in conjunction with, Council's Infrastructure Development Code.
The Guidelines are intended for use by a range of industry professionals such as designers, planners, policy developers, contractors and those responsible for system maintenance.
If you are working outside of the Tauranga City area, a complementary set of guidelines have been produced for the Bay of Plenty region and can be found on the Bay of Plenty Regional Council website.
