The catchment of the Mangatoetoe Stream experienced heavy rainfall during the period 16-17 July 2005. This rainfall caused high flows in the Mangatoetoe Stream through Waihi township and resulted in overtopping of the culvert at the junction of Consols Street and Baber Street and flooding of one dwelling at 20 Baber Street.
This report provides assessment of the magnitude of the recent flood event, the 50 year flood levels and recommends the appropriate minimum floor levels of buildings within this reach of the stream. It also defines the responsibilities of Environment Waikato for maintaining the Mangatoetoe stream under the Waihou Valley Scheme.
The objectives of this report are:
