Waimakariri Scheme Intake Closed For 2 Days

Published: 29-Aug-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 re-install the damaged parts.

We apologise for the inconvenience, but this work is critical, and is being timed to ensure a more reliable supply of water when demand is critical in spring and summer.
