From Mid August to June each year Works Group staff carry out maintenance along streams, waterway and river channels in rural and urban areas.
The maintenance schedules are set at the beginning of the spring season. However the work plan changes day to day because of weather, plant growth, flooding and staffing.
Maintenance staff work along a continuous maintenance access corridor following the streams, waterways and channel systems. Much of the maintenance work is constantly moving with short duration stops of up to 1 hour, and workers may move through 30 or more private properties in a day.
Construction projects naturally take longer and we discuss access/safety issues with neighbouring land owners/occupiers in the planning stages.
The Works Group has an audited formal quality assurance system to TQS 1 standard for continued improvement, an audited ACC tertiary accreditation plus an audited Green Status with Sitewise.
