Cyclone Gabrielle, Metservice have issued a heavy rain watch North of the Rakaia river this afternoon into the early hours of tomorrow. We are also expecting ECAN to increase the water allocation from the Waimakariri River this afternoon at 2pm.

Irrigators, if you no longer require water please delete or pause your water orders in the Water Metrics system before the 3pm cut off today.
We currently have 84 orders in the water ordering system that could be confirmed after 3pm today via email conformation for delivery tomorrow to the farm gate. Flooding issues will result if we deliver your water tomorrow and you don’t intend to turn on.

If you have any issues with water ordering or you are unsure about anything, get in touch with one of the Operations Team or call 0275231295.
