Water for our Future
The Hurunui Water Project is focussed on the sustainability and future well-being of the Hurunui District.
Who is behind the Hurunui Water Project?
The Hurunui Water Project or HWP is a farmer-shareholder based irrigation company originating over 16 years ago within the farming community centred around Hawarden town-ship in the Hurunui District of North Canterbury.
We have 196 Shareholders, most of which are landowners in the region. They are supported by a Board of Directors and a team of staff operating from our central Christchurch office.
History of the Hurunui Water Project
The Hurunui District is subject to frequent and extended droughts that impact harshly on its agricultural productivity, threatening the stability and sustainability of its communities.
The HWP has been over 15 years in the making, arising from various groups with a common interest in the sustainable use of water for irrigation, and possibly hydrogeneration, with a mind to the future well-being of the Hurunui District.
