Waimakariri Earthquake Social Recovery Services

The paper provides a brief account of the history of Kaiapoi and the impact of the 4 September and subsequent earthquakes on the town’s infrastructure.  It also outlines the plans prepared by the Waimakariri District Council in 2010 to undertake a comprehensive rebuild of the most seriously damaged parts of the town.

Our success will not be measured by the kilometres of pipe and road that we replace, but by how the people come through this.
