Exactly how large is the Village?
Home Block is 25 hectares
River Block is 15 hectares
Hill Block is 50 hectares
The land is between a creek and a river…flooding danger?? I’ve lived about 100m from the Karamea River and I’ve seen it in flood…YIKES!
There is no flood risk on the home block, %5 of the river block might flood.
The latest estimation we heard (may 2015) for rising of see level is a meter per 25 years, the home block is 40m above see level – seems like we have some time there…
