The Regional Council flood team supports a range of agencies, from emergency services to local councils, during a flood event.
We have a dedicated flood room that is specially designed to support the flood team’s emergency flood response.
The Flood Room operates in two modes – ‘monitoring’ and ‘activated’.
- Monitoring – A Regional Council duty Flood Manager is on call 24 hours a day maintaining an overview of river levels, weather patterns and forecasts affecting the Bay of Plenty.
- Activated – the flood team is set up in the flood room and operations staff are helping in the field.
The duty Flood Manager can be contacted on +64 7 922 3375.
