SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Wednesday February 7 2018 15 News Follow the journey of Canty water A BUS tour has been organised to show the journey of water from Lake Coleridge through the Malvern Foothills over the past 100 years. The project is part of a Hororata Community Trust heritage project. On the tour, people will discover how the ingenuity and engineering of pioneers who set out to make a living on the land in 1840 still influences the area today. The heritage of a rural water scheme tour will be on March 11 and will take people through spectacular high country scenery onto private land. “Water has always been a controversial topic, without it we would not be able to farm or live on this land. This tour is about showing the evolution of open water races for farm and town supply to the efficiency of piping the water,” said organising committee member Gavin King. “It was really quite a feat how the water races were built 100 years ago by hand; their ability to get the fall just right so the water flowed from the source at the Dry Acheron to the end users is impressive, Mr King said. On the tour people will be taken behind the scenes onto private land so they can really get to see and understand how this water scheme developed, he said. KNOWLEDGE: The heritage of a rural water scheme tour committee at the Dry Acheron intake. ​ Starting at the Hororata Domain the tour will go through Glentunnel and up to Windwhistle where the Snowdon Water scheme originates. Local guides will provide information during the tour on the historic water scheme and farming operations. The tour will take detours onto private farms to see the historic intake and siphon. Lunch will be in the Coleridge village with a tour of the historic Coleridge Power Station. A number of heritage properties will be open on the day for those who do not wish to do the bus tour. Properties open include Terrace Station, Gunyah Estate, Coton’s Cottage and Museum, Glentunnel Museum. Properties will charge an entry fee at their gate. The event will take place on March 11, departing the Hororata Domain at 9.30am returning 4.30pm. Tickets are $450 per person, lunch is included. People need to pre-register, no ticket sales on the day. •Details can be found at www.hororata.org.nz or phone Karen Meares on 3186 959. Perfect weather greeted athletes taking part in Rolleston College’s athletics day. The event was held on Monday. STAMINA: Ella Jarvis competing in shot put.
