See Our Recent Activity CLOSURE FOR WAIMAKARIRI WATER SCHEME.
This evening the Browns Rock Intake will be closed due to the severe weather warning in place for Cyclone Gita, which is predicted to bring damaging winds and heavy rain to central parts of New Zealand. Waimakariri Irrigation in conjunction with the local council have decided to take precautionary measures to close the water scheme this evening in an attempt to minimise potential impacts from the Cyclone.
The intake gates will remain closed until further notice, and we will keep you up-to-date as the situation progresses.
Irrigators please turn off as water race levels subside.
