Ross Conserve Water update 2

Ross Conserve Water update 2

5 March 2020

Efforts have been made to increase the flow from the creek to the water intake with contractors manually digging out at the affected part of the creek. These efforts have had minimal effect to the water flow. Council is working with DoC and contractors to develop a plan to take excavating machinery to the site to do the necessary work. As the land is conservation estate, the plan has to be approved by DoC before work can commence.

Council will provide further updates on the conserve water notice and an estimated timeline as they become available.

A new water intake planned through the 2018-28 Long Term Plan is progressing and the current water shortage emphasises the need for this project.
