The Christchurch Drainage Board was constituted by a special Act of Parliament in 1875 to provide for the drainage of the city of Christchurch and surrounding districts. The Board was responsible for constructing a system of sewers for Christchurch and the suburban areas of Spreydon, Sydenham, St. Albans, Linwood and Riccarton. Doris Lusk (1916-1990) painted a well-known painting of the pumping station.
