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.
