Hawke’s Bay Region stormwater “State of Knowledge” report

Discharges of stormwater in the Hawke’s Bay Region are currently managed under the provisions of the Regional Resource Management Plan and the Proposed Regional Coastal Environment Plan. As part of a wider review of its environmental policies, the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council is reviewing its planning provisions relating to discharges of stormwater.
To contribute to this review process, the council commissioned Aquanet Consulting Ltd to produce a “state of knowledge” report, summarising the information available on the location, nature and environmental effects of discharges of stormwater across the Hawke’s Bay region, as of February 2011.
