Balmoral Scheme

The Balmoral Scheme was built in 1985 and partially upgraded to pipe in 2017. The consent allows for 5 cubic metres per second of water to be taken and water is diverted from the Hurunui River below the Mandamus confluence into a diversion race on the north bank. The water then runs along a race to a control gate structure and into a settlement pond. Any surplus water can be returned to the river at this point. A fish screen and intake are located at the head of this pond and the rate of flow into the intake is controlled by a radial gate at the river intake and a second gate at the head of the pond. An open race carries the water to near Balmoral Station Road where it enters two pipelines for further distribution towards farmland near Culverden.
