In November a magnitutde 7.8 earthquake struck just out of Kaikoura. One of of the results of the earthquake was signficant slips at Hapuku and Goose Bay causing earth dams to form in the streams. These two slips pose significant risk to the bridges on SH1 and in the case of Goose Bay, the settlement and camp ground. Harvest was contracted by NZTA and Kaikoura District Council to install monitoring equipment at both dams and provide alerts on the Hapuku and Goose Bay bridges to warn motorists in case of dam burst as significant damage could be caused. In the case of Goose Bay another alert was setup to warn the residents of dam burst so they would have sufficient time to reach high ground.
Check out video footage of the Goose Bay installation here.

Harvest attended Southern Field Days in Waimumu, Southland. Southern Field Days was a chance for us to meet existing and new customers.
As Harvest has expanded into new markets there has been a need to expand the tech support team. Marian Smolders and Shaun Kelly have joined the existing team of four which is lead by Philip Harvey.
The Harvest ITU Mini has now been released. The ITU Mini is primarily intended for use as an option for those after an entry level weather station.
