About us

Water for our Future

The Hurunui Water Project is focussed on the sustainability and future well-being of the Hurunui District.


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.
