Community infrastructure resilience work gains New Zealand media coverage

With the imminent completion of Wellington’s above-ground emergency water network, Cardno and our client, Wellington Water, are featuring in New Zealand industry magazines.

Country Manager Rod James is pleased that the importance of this work is being recognised within the industry and in the wider community.

“The $12 million Community Infrastructure Resilience programme was established in June 2017, and I am extremely proud of the way that our teams have converted this strategy into action. It has been intense – completing the region’s most comprehensive hydrogeological study and water source investigation, the design and delivery of 22 low-cost modular water treatment stations, a comprehensive water distribution network, and an integrated emergency plan,” he said.

The latest issue of Engineering NZ’s EG Magazine features an article called “Engineering a Water Supply”, which outlines the effects on the city’s water supply following a major disaster, and how the emergency network will operate.

Local Government Magazine has published an extensive article in the June 2018 issue, quoting our Technical Director of Infrastructure Strategy, Antony Cameron and Wellington Water’s Mark Kinvig. Images created by our New Zealand graphic designers are also featured in this article.
