Clutha

The Clutha District covers an area of about 6362 square kilometres, mainly in farmland with townships and small communities spread throughout. This means in an emergency Civil Defence staff cannot immediately be at everyone's doorstep. It's therefore vital for all residents to take steps of their own to prepare for an emergency. Our key geographical feature is the Clutha River, which runs through the centre of the district. There are a number of moderate ranges but no alpine areas.
