Hello there.


I have been looking at moving to Cambridge for a while now, and keep abreast of the local news etc.


Cambridge news hasn't been updated for a few days now. No news is good news right?


Just wondered how, if at all, the weather has affected the region? Any localised flooding and if so which areas?


This helps with building up a better picture of which areas to look at living in.

Because of its proximity, and elevation above, the Waikato River, I would imagine it has fairly good drainage. The fields in the green belt have always flooded a bit, but it never seemed to last long*.


The surrounding rural areas may be a different story as creeks and drains will be maxed out.

That's what I was considering, with the intensification of housing I wondered if there had been an impact on drainage. 


I assume, with such a large sub development, that stormwater drainage design would be a fairly important design aspect, with a lot of assessment to ensure it is adequate.
