Irrigo Centre Ltd was formed by five Irrigation Schemes in 2011 to provide a co-ordinated administration service for it's members. Clear benefits were seen in sharing administration costs, as well as the more consistent and professional approach that would follow. The schemes involved include Acton Farmers Irrigation Co-op Ltd, Ashburton Lyndhurst Irrigation Ltd, Barrhill Chertsey Irrigation Ltd, MHV Water Ltd and Rangitata South Irrigation Ltd.
In May 2012 the Directors of the Board began exploring additional ways to support each other and identified potential to add further value to the schemes by consolidating resources, enhancing services and identifying areas where the schemes can work more closely together. This included sharing policy and environmental services, resources such as flow meters, generators & GPS as well as enhancing training and career opportunities for staff.
Irrigo Centre Ltd's services are open to other Irrigation Companies or Water User Groups requiring support.
Conference Room facilities are also available to the general public.
