Tongariro release (Poutu, Access 10)

Date: 
Sunday, September 17, 2017 - 09:00 - 15:00

Replacement release for Tongariro release (Rangipo, Access 14), due to a rahui in place currently covering an area that will impact Access 14 and Access 13. (https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/96048013/rahui-put-on-during-search-for...). Genesis have been in contact with the Iwi and have let us know that the Rahui will continue past next weekend.

Note, James Rae (Access Officer) has spoken to the rafting companies and the Forestry guys and the takeout access will be fine for the release weekend. When they start logging close to the road in a few weeks time the access road will be closed for about 6 weeks and a lower takeout (e.g. Red Hut Swingbridge/Trout Hatchery etc.) will have to be used instead. The logging will be finished by the next release weekend but there may be some further announcements with ongoing access due to the new landowners.
