This page refers to irrigation for farming purposes where permission is required from Environment Canterbury.
If you wish to irrigate on your land for farming purposes you will need a Resource Consent from Environment Canterbury. Please visit the Environment Canterbury Resource Consents page for detailed information.
Once you have a Resource Consent from Environment Canterbury, you can check whether there are restrictions limiting your ability to take water by visiting the Environment Canterbury page on Irrigation Restrictions.
