MainPower has been working with Waimakariri Irrigation Limited (WIL) for the past 18 months to investigate a run of river hydro generation scheme at Browns Rock, on the Waimakariri River.
MainPower has also held discussions with the Waimakariri District Council and affected landowners, and may seek the involvement of further partners as the project evolves. Discussions have been held to gain an understanding of the perspectives of the parties and to communicate MainPower's intentions.
To date a number of environmental assessments have been carried out to determine the effects on the river and the surrounding areas. The studies are positive for the project and MainPower will continue its discussions with key stakeholders to ensure a benefit to all.
