Join us on the 20th June from 4.30pm at the Martinborough Hotel for our Water Resilience Forum. Register for free here!
Wairarapa, as a classic “dry east coast” region, has attempted to manage its way through recent Water Policy changes as it promotes water storage at a range of scales to help secure the economic and social benefits to the community of a successful primary sector. Over this period, responding to the increasing unavailability of water in times of high need, there have been two parallel paths relating to improving the resilience of the community and its productive base.
- Community scale water storage – the Wakamoekau Water Storage Project
- The Wairarapa Water Users Society – member information on efficiency including farm scale storage.
This Wairarapa Water Resilience Forum will cater to both areas of interest and will build on a similar forum held in 2018 and the subsequent Wairarapa Water Resilience Strategy.
Keep an eye on future national events through the NZ Institute of Primary Industry Management.
