Dairy Creek Irrigation Scheme Final Report
Lower Manuherikia Valley Water Resources Study Summary Document is available here.
New irrigation scheme utilising water from Lake Dunstan to irrigate 3500ha on the Waikerikeri Terraces north of Alexandra.
Justify the inclusion/exclusion of the Dairy Creek scheme to the adjoining wider Lake Dunstan scheme proposal, and to include or eliminate this option so the scheme can commence.
Remove concern/confusion relating to the best option for the Dairy Creek scheme and allow the scheme to progress to the financing and water use consent stage.
Engage OPUS International Consultants as Consultant/Project Manager to include Dairy Creek option in wider Lake Dunstan study and report on the variations to current cost estimates with a recommendation which direction scheme should proceed. Dairy Creek group can then proceed with advancing the scheme with separated infrastructure as originally proposed or as an inclusion in the wider scheme infrastructure.
Consultant (OPUS) is nearing completion of the wider Lake Dunstan Study reports.
Release of the reports has been delayed due to some technical design issues that are complicating the headworks infrastructure and substantially affecting the capital cost indications.
Stage 1 Report-High level Overview is complete and issued to Society and ORC.
Stage 3 Report-Drinking Water Security Review is complete and issued to Society and CODC/ORC.
Stage 2 Report-Detailed Concept Design is delayed as stated above.
It has been agreed that all three reports will be released for consideration together so the completed reports are being held until that time. It is hoped that this will be in the next 2-3 months (September/October 2010). OPUS is currently working through a substantial list of queries and revisions regarding the initial draft of the Stage 2 Detailed Concept Design.
CODC have been utilising the Stage 3 Report on an in house basis to assist with future drinking water decisions.
The inclusion/exclusion of the Dairy Creek scheme is part of the Detailed Concept Study
