The ponds are typically 4 to up to 15m high with excavation ranging between 2 to up to 8m. This particular reservoir is located in Awatere Valley in Marlborough. The embankment is up to 14m high with a storage capacity of 87,000m3. The pond was constructed and commissioned in 2018 for the purpose of irrigating vineyards.
