BROWNS ROCK INTAKE CLOSURE: Thursday 8th November 2018
Due to heavy rainfall, Ecan have flood warnings in place for the Waimakariri River.
The river is rising rapidly.
The intake gates will remain closed until further notice, this is necessary to protect the intake infrastructure.
Irrigators please turn off as water race levels subside.
It is likely machinery will need to clear shingle from the intake when the river levels have reduced before re-opening.
We will update you as soon as the intake is able to be re-opened and irrigation water is available.
