Water

Wairakei Estate has a partnership approach to sustainable water management and use. This involves a “whole of catchment” approach to water management which ensures efficient methods and systems are utilised and all actions are taken to reduce any impact on freshwater.

Wairakei Estate monitors water usage on a daily basis to enable improved management of the resource, including the elimination of breaches of water use consents and the efficient use of water.  This daily reporting takes a whole of catchment approach, connecting water availability (from the river, streams and bores), water abstraction (water take points) and water use (farm activities).
