WAIMAKARIRI SCHEME INTAKE CLOSED TUESDAY 16th MAY._ May 15, 2017 _
Repairs and maintenance is required at the scheme intake. In order to carry out the repairs the river has to be diverted away from the intake to allow the water level to drop enough for technicians to remove the damaged part. Sections of the scheme canals also require some surveying of the race inverts, therefore we are planning to time these works in parallel to minimise disruption. The repairs & surveying will commence early Tuesday morning 16th May and we anticipate to resume stock water flow by Wednesday night 17th May before the forecast bad weather arrives this week.
Please accept our apologies and we hope to get the water reinstated to you as soon as possible.
