More Info →Kahuterawa Stream

This piece of 4 inch, cast iron pipe was found lying in the kahuterawa Stream. The Fitzherbert West Water Race Scheme was built in 1917 to supply farms in the area with water. Pipes were installed in the stream to take water down to a settlement box which removed the silt and debris, and then onto the farms. Pipes were often smashed with the movement of large boulders in the stream.
