Ruataniwha Water Storage Scheme
Hawke’s Bay Regional Council voted unanimously in 2017 to move on from the Ruataniwha Water Storage Scheme and focus its efforts on other priorities.
The ability for the scheme to proceed remains uncertain in light of the Supreme Court’s decision not to allow the Department of Conservation land swap necessary for the construction of the proposed Ruataniwha dam.
Hawke’s Bay Regional Council completed the sale of the Ruataniwha Water Storage Scheme intellectual property and assets to Water Holdings CHB Limited, from Central Hawke’s Bay, for $100,000.
Both the Council and HBRIC Ltd are now focussing their energies on new priorities.
