Cancelled

Mangahao release

Date: 
Saturday, October 29, 2016 - 10:00 - 16:00
Section: 
Mangahao Gorge

Release is cancelled due to excess water: a front passing over on Friday night is expected to fill the reservoir and prevent the bypass gate from opening, with uncontrolled spilling of the trip gates sending over 100 cumecs down the gorge.

Piripaua release

Date: 
Saturday, November 5, 2016 - 09:00 - 15:00

28m3/s. c/- Genesis Energy. "Hawkes Bay Canoe Club (HBCC) members will be unable to attend the release as they will instead be assisting with the construction of a slalom site that weekend. Traditionally these one-day Piripaua releases are utilised by HBCC members, therefore we decided to cancel the release on the grounds that there would be insufficient paddlers."
