Raukokore and Waihau Bay Land Use Study

Te Whanau a Maruhaeremuri Hapu Trust led a project to investigate and design a system to draw water from the Raukokore River, and build storage capacity and infrastructure to irrigate up to 1500ha of land in the Raukokore and Waihau Bay catchments. The landowners engaged WSP to provide specialised information and advice to identify the priority options for land use, undertake feasibility investigations of potential cropping options and find the best opportunities for long-term success.
