Irrigators collective expands

1:53 pm on 13 July 2011

A collective representing irrigation schemes on the Lower Waitaki River has been expanded to include individual irrigators.

The Waitaki Irrigators Collective was established last year by the five community irrigation schemes operating below the Waitaki dam.

Policy manager Elizabeth Soal says including individual irrigators means it can represent the full range of irrigation interests along the Lower Waitaki on common issues, such as consents.
