Job description

2 in a Ute is exactly that - two people working together on maintaining vegetation along storm waterways in their local community.

It is an exciting joint venture between Auckland Council and Citycare Water. We are working together to improve the quality of Auckland's waterways and storm water infrastructure.

We manage storm water run-off by using natural soil and plant processes to filter out the pollutants before they reach ground water and waterways.

These are called water sensitive storm water devices which minimises the impact on the environment and enhances the appeal of community spaces for Aucklanders.
