Matawii is a 750,000m3 water storage reservoir under construction on Kopenui Stream, northeast of Kaikohe. The reservoir is impounded by a 24m high earth-fill dam constructed using site-won volcanic soils. The reservoir forms part of a wider scheme under development in the Mid-North by Te Tai Tokerau Water Trust. Matawii is multi-purpose, supplying water to the Ngawha Innovation and Enterprise Park, horticultural land south of Kaikohe, and is a backup for existing municipal needs at Kaikohe. Matawii was the first project nationally to be granted consent under the COVID-19 Recovery (Fast-track consenting) ACT 2020. After the site visit if you would like to join us for dinner at Left Bank and Mint Restaurant, Kaikohe, kindly RSVP in the registration page. Event brought to you by Northland Branch and Young Engineers who are pleased to advise NZGS and NZSOLD are collaborating on the event. REGISTER NOW
