South Dunedin

A changing environment

South Dunedin is a vibrant and diverse community that tens of thousands call home.

Otago Regional Council (ORC) has been collecting and analysing information about the natural hazards faced by South Dunedin.

This information includes the history of the landscape, the relationship between groundwater and land levels, sea level rise and other risks such as the potential impacts of coastal erosion and earthquakes.

In July 2016 we released a technical report covering a lot of the work we’ve done, and groundwater monitoring information is available on our website.

We continue to invest in research to find out more about what lies beneath South Dunedin.
