All projects are scoped and can be funded from existing budgets. The total project budget for short / medium term projects in the Security of Supply Strategy, allowing for inflation, is $12.2m (including $6.6m for the Ross Creek Reservoir Refurbishment). Building the Taieri River crossing and lowering or decommissioning the Ross Creek Reservoir to make it safe is estimated at $18.8m.
Because the project will provide backup for the Deep Creek and Deep Stream systems, their renewal can be deferred, saving $11.2m from existing budgets by 2021/22.
