How Safe Living In Trentham?

Michael from Trentham

I live in the floor area of Trentham where it is promoted as being especially safe from earthquakes, tsunamis, floods and liquifaction.
Now we do not live on the infamous earthquake fault line but its pretty close by; tsunamis are unlikely to infiltrate so far up the valley as Trentham; the ground is solid and clayish.

But safe from flooding??

The Hutt River is a dominating feature of the Hutt Valley and its potential to rise furiously and break through the man-made tentative barriers that are meant to bind it, must create some trepidation for those who live on its level.
So is Trentham over towards the eastern hills safe from flooding? I don't think so.

There have been a lot of bird and animal stories on Nieghbourly but this picture by Andrew Gorrie is too good to ignore.
