Our Stormwater Maintenance Company was founded on a desire to protect New Zealand’s waterways; protection of our natural environment is at the heart of our company’s values. If you have a stormwater device on your property, it is your responsibility to ensure it is functioning as designed, and we’re here to do the stormwater maintenance for you.

Most stormwater treatment devices are filters, which over time need to be cleaned and sometimes repaired or replaced. We work with you to ensure the stormwater maintenance service provided is correct for your site.

As one of New Zealand’s top stormwater management companies, we are committed to helping keep Christchurch’s stormwater systems operating as designed. Whether you’re a commercial or residential customer, we guarantee to provide you with the best stormwater maintenance service available.

Our stormwater system maintenance proposals are site-specific and are always designed for the customer’s benefit.  We do this through outstanding customer service, strong health and safety standards, audits on quality of work and the finest and most relevant reports in the business. Whatever your stormwater maintenance needs in Christchurch and the surrounds, we will deliver.

We are proud to be in partnership with registered charity, Sustainable Coastlines, supporting their work to enable people to look after the coastlines and waterways they love. Find out how we help.
