Styx catchment

The Styx catchment is largely rural, but also includes significant urban areas of Christchurch and Belfast and some commercial and industrial areas.

The programme includes investigating options along the main Styx River and two smaller areas. Investigations consider modifying maintenance and operations, but also flood protection works such as stopbanks and flood walls, ring banking of some isolated areas, and backflow prevention.
