Waihao Downs Irrigation Scheme

Irricon is responsible for obtaining the nutrient discharge consent for the newly constructed Waihao Downs Irrigation scheme. The requirement for the consent is under the Land and Water Plan, Plan Change 3, which specifically allows for the scheme to go ahead.

This is a critical piece of paper for the scheme as it allows its shareholders to sustainably develop under irrigation whilst ensuring that environmental limits are not breached.
