Geraldine Water Solutions group put alpine water proposal before ECan, community representatives

4 Jul 2017

A group of Geraldine farmers are asking a water zone committee to consider bringing in alpine water to farms in the area, to help both agriculture and the region's waterways.

The Geraldine Water Solutions group presented their recommendations to the Orari-Temuka-Opihi-Pareora zone committee on Monday.

Member Milne Horne said there would be a "huge impact" on farmers if the region's rules around waterways were to change without bringing more water in.

The group wanted the zone committee to consider alpine water as an option. See more
