The Waimea Water Augmentation Committee (WWAC) was a partnership between local industry and local Councils focused on developing a solution to allow the proposal for dam within the Lee Valley to go forward. The committee is currently inactive.

More recently this work has been picked up by the Tasman District Council and Waimea Irrigators Limited(external link).
