COVID 19 Update

Covid 19 Plan

With the government announcement escalation to Alert 3 moving to Alert Level 4 within 48 hours, we are now preparing for the lock down on Wednesday 25th March.

Effective immediately the Lower Waitaki Irrigation Co Ltd office will be closed to the public and visitors.

Supply of water to shareholders is an essential service and it is our no 1 priority to keep up the supply of water, at the same time it is of the utmost importance that we keep our staff and their families safe.

In the interim we will be moving to a roster system where one Race man controls the system for a period of seven days then hands over to the next so the other two Raceman will self-isolate for the next two weeks.

Because there will only be one Raceman on at one time:

Only call your Race man if it is absolutely necessary.

All spray irrigators to put in their water orders.

We advise that Border dyke irrigators check their turn outs regularly as Raceman may not get to your turnout daily.

We appreciate your co-operation at this difficult time and will kep you up to date with any further developments.
