The Environmental Engineering Standards (EES) set out the minimum acceptable levels for engineering design and construction in the Whangarei district.
The 2007 document applies to all consents which were applied for between 1998 and 30 June 2010 and no further amendments will be made to it.
The 2010 document applies to all consents which have been applied for since 1 July 2010. It may be amended from time to time and updated on this page.
If you wish to be notified of changes to the document as they happen, please contact us to become an official holder of the standards.
Environmental Engineering Standards Procedures Manual
This manual is intended to act as a "how-to" guide for the EES and provide examples of various activities. In conjunction with this manual, we have adopted a policy on the use of subsoil drainage for land development.
A Quality Assurance/Quality Control Manual for Vested Assets is available and should be used by relevant professionals where infrastructure intended to be vested to Council is being constructed.
Input to these documents from professionals and others is welcome. Please contact us with your submissions.
