The dam will also be used to better sustain the water resources in the Tukituki catchment area that become dry and depleted of water during the summer periods, which can also affect the aquatic life. The dam will cost nearly $1 billion dollars to build, with payments being made from the public, and private investors. The dam will be built in the upper Makaroro river, and will hold 93,000,000 m3 of water which will be used as a stable source of water for irrigation, and to sustain the rivers during the summer, drought periods, or times of high water needs. The dam will have walls that go 83m high and will go for 7km’s, but changes are still be made to the project, with new pumping station being placed, to decrease the amount of money farmers would have to pay to use the water for their farm.
