Wairarapa Regional Irrigation Trust
“The Wairarapa Regional Irrigation Trust is facilitating the development of a storage-based, region-wide irrigation scheme that will allow the utilisation of the high volume of water available from the Tararua Ranges in the times when the Wairarapa Valley is facing water shortages.

Like many Eastern areas of NZ, Wairarapa faces summer water shortages that place limits on the production and therefore profitability of the various land use types present in the region. Lack of reliable water is also limiting the ability for the future productive potential to be achieved. However, the Tararua ranges receive some of the highest annual rainfall in the North Island and it is this water that will be captured, stored and released via a water distribution system.

The potential command area within the Wairarapa Valley is over 50,000 ha with likely irrigation coverage of over 30,000 ha.”
