Modern, Controlled, Sustainable Irrigation
The Hurunui Water Project - working to provide a reliable water supply to its farming communities in order to future-proof them against drought.
The Hurunui Water Project irrigation scheme is designed as an on-plains storage, pipe-distributed network that will deliver water to service shareholder farmers throughout its Hurunui and Waipara catchment Command Area. Main features include a large on-plains storage pond on the northside of the Hurunui River, use of an existing Hurunui River intake and a mainly pipe distribution network.
The project will only take water when the Hurunui River is flowing high – won’t affect low-flow periods;
No in-river dams or habitat flooding – proposal uses on-plains storage on previously cleared land;
Piped distribution network – will reduce water losses, lessen land impact, reduce pumping costs;
HWP will promote efficient and sustainable water management scheme-wide and on-farm, with strong environmental and nutrient management controls.
What an interesting and informative day Carrfields Irrigation hosted last week for HWP shareholders and friends!
MC'd by Richard Loe, the programme covered an array of topics relevant to making irrigation pay. Presented by industry experts that included rural banking and land valuation, farm business planning and irrigation development and ending with a look into the future of food production.
