Following a successful capital raising in late 2014 the stage two expansion project is under way. The project will deliver around 1.2 cumecs to properties in the area between Barrhill and Dromore.
Infrastructure includes a new intake from the Rakaia River near Barrhill, a pumped line to the Barrhill area, and a gravity delivery line to the Chertsey and Dromore areas. A hydro generator will also be installed in the river infrastructure. Around 64km of pipe will be installed with a target completion date in September 2015.
Work has commenced in the Rakaia riverbed and April will see the first pipes installed in the project.
