HOW WE BEGAN
Ed Dutton has worked in the stormwater industry in South Africa and New Zealand. Ed’s first job in New Zealand was with Hynds Environmental, selling stormwater treatment devices. Dutton Stormwater now services and maintains the majority of these devices.
While working in the sales sector, he realized that there was a lack of professional stormwater maintenance in Auckland and Christchurch. Stormwater devices in Auckland and Christchurch weren’t being serviced well – if at all – so he decided to do something about it.
In 2009 Ed bought a van, and began his mission to build today’s large dynamic team of people, who share his vision for cleaner waterways in New Zealand for the next generation.
A STORY OF GROWTH
14 years on, Dutton Stormwater employs over 40 staff across our Auckland and Christchurch offices. We provide maintenance services to some of New Zealand’s biggest commercial clients. Foodstuffs, Caltex and Gull and Goodman all utilize our services, as does Auckland Council.
But it’s not just the big guys – many residential clients also rely on us for the regular maintenance of their stormwater devices.
It’s a success story that’s grown from the core values that underpin the company’s vision.

HEALTHY WATERS TREATMENT DEVICE MAINTENANCE CONTRACT
In 2020 Dutton Stormwater were awarded the contract from Healthy Waters to maintain the treatment devices for the Auckland Region for the next five years. This was a culmination of years of working for contractors for Council and immersing ourselves in the stormwater treatment device space.
OUR STORMWATER RESPONSIBLE AWARDS
To acknowledge and publicly recognise the commitment of our customers to Responsible Stormwater Management, and to raise awareness of the importance of stormwater system maintenance, we have created the Stormwater Responsible badge. This badge is awarded to customers who demonstrate responsible stormwater practices by regularly maintaining their stormwater systems. Companies can then use this to show their own customers and the community they are doing their part to minimise contamination of our waterways.
To qualify, customers of Dutton Stormwater must have performed regular stormwater maintenance on their existing devices for at least two years, and/or have committed to two year’s scheduled maintenance on all stormwater devices going forward. To discuss further, or if you already qualify and would like to be awarded the badge, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
