WIPP Trials in Wanganui

WIPP barrier installation trials were carried out at ANZAC Parade, Wanganui with Horizon Regional Council staff and contractors. The larger barrier was air filled to simulate the deployment. The barriers are used to provide the required level of flood protection along the stop bank in areas where there are access roads crossing the flood defences.
