The Coastal Inundation Tool is intended to identify areas along the Waikato coast that are susceptible to coastal inundation.  The water levels provided are indicative only and are regarded as estimates for most areas.  The tool is to provide users with an appreciation of current and future coastal inundation.

The information contained in the coastal inundation tool is not to be used for decisions that concern personal or public safety or the conduct of business that involves substantial monetary or operational consequences.

The tool does not identify coastal hazard areas suitable for assessing risk to specific property.  Further investigation is required to quantify a coastal hazard area or define minimum ground/floor levels.

Waikato Regional Council and its employees, while providing this information in good faith, accepts no responsibility for any loss, damage, injury, or loss in value to any person, property, service or otherwise resulting from its use.
