Frequently Asked Questions About Drainage
The main purpose of stormwater systems is to collect runoff water created by rainfall or melted snow. A stormdrain consists of two parts – external (gutters under the roof) and underground (receivers and pipes that drain water from the house). Water from the roof enters the part that is in the ground, and then it is removed from the site.
There are a few ways you can go about getting drainage plans for your house, starting of by contacting:
Local government planning and building department: They might have information regarding your property and can provide you with a copy of the drainage plans or direct you to the relevant department or company that can help you.
Licensed land surveyor or engineer: These professionals create a preliminary drainage plan for your property. They will also be able to provide you with any necessary permits or approvals required by the government or local council.
Online communities: check out local community groups on social media, or online forums to gain a personal insight from locals who have a similar need as or have already gone through the process.
It’s paramount to note that some local councils in New Zealand do not have public records of drainage plans, in this case you may have to hire a private land surveyor or civil engineer to create a drainage plan for you. Before doing this, make sure that you are legally allowed to make changes to the drainage system in your area by researching local regulations.
