July 2017 flooding event
The HL is at the highest level yet seen due to the exceptional rainfall event. See photos in the Photo Gallery.

Scotia Street causeway upgrade

All the causeways have now been upgraded thanks to a donation from the Waikouaiti Coast Community Board, and the limechip provided at a reduced cost from East Otago Engineering. The physical labour was provided by men completing their community hours. A great effort, thank you everyone.
