Events and activities

National Lifelines scene

The WLUG maintains a close link with other lifelines projects and groups around the country through the National Lifelines Committee. The National Lifelines Committee also undertakes projects that benefit all lifelines groups.

National Forum

A National Lifelines Forum is held every year in November. This provides an opportunity for regional lifeline utilities project managers and managers of major utility companies to come together, share ideas and learn best practice.

Meetings and annual seminar

The WLUG holds meetings and an annual seminar for members and interested parties. Members are encouraged to report on progress made within their organisations on mitigation activities, asset management and disaster preparedness planning.


We've identified a number of potential projects that could substantially contribute to reducing the vulnerability of the Waikato region's lifeline utilities and improve disaster preparedness planning. The WLUG intends to progress those projects that will collectively benefit the lifeline utilities organisations in the Waikato region.
