See photos of the impressive progress Rooney is making with its $82 million Rangitata South Irrigation Scheme. The final two storage ponds have now been stripped, structured and lined with Ecotech Geotextile lining. Main delivery race work, road crossings and realignment work is well under way.

This issue also includes information about the ponds being built including those for the Mayfield Hinds Irrigation Scheme and Lower Waitaki Irrigation Company.

Ashburton's Lake Hood Extension project also makes an interesting story explaining how doubling size is yielding a reliable source of shingle for client, Ashburton Contracting Ltd.

Among many other projects, work continues for Fonterra at Darfield including earthworks for the new railway link. Tmaru projects include Alpine Energy Ltd / NetCon - Redruth 11kV cable installation, Redruth Landfill Stage 2 Capping and the $15 million domestic waste-water treatment plant upgrade where Rooney Earthmoving has a proud association because of the environmental and sustainable advances involved.

Read how Rooney's Rangitata South Irrigation Scheme is more than harvesting water from the river to increase economic value for the region. It is also giving back with a fish spawning race. This project comprising seven ponds covering 300ha up to 8m deep, is set to provide 16.5 million cubic metres of storage water to 16,000ha of irrigatable farm land.

In this issue you can also find out about the on-farm benefits and job opportunities being created by other projects including the $10.5 million Acton Irrigation Scheme extension, and various dams, farm ponds, border-dyking and an underpass.

Learn from another story about how Rooney Earthmoving completed high quality access foundations, hardstand areas, platforms and drainage for the Fonterra Drier 1 Project on time, to budget, while complying with all consent requirements on an environmentally sensitive green field site on SH73, just east of Darfield.
