Dams register

Waikato Regional Council and other regional councils are required under the Building Act to maintain a register of dams for their respective regions.

The register enables councils to contact dam owners on matters of importance to them, such as new regulations and guidance material on dam safety. If you own a dam, then you should check whether it should be on the register. Just contact us - there's no cost!
