Tekapo water being used for irrigation

Buy, Sell, Swap is now at whitewater.nz/market-place.

More details soon...


If anyone saw that Press article the other day about Tekapo being used for irrigation purposes as well as power, here is the application.
The worry for us is that the lake may more often be below the minimum level required for us to be able to have releases.
NZRCA will be submitting, but the more the merrier....

The Aoraki Water Trust application has been publicly notified and submissions close Friday August 8, 2003.
The application is available to view here.. http://www.ecan.govt.nz/Consents/publicly-notified-applications.asp.

I know that the Opihi can be paddled as low as 10 but is really only worth a look at 20 and above.

Will that effect the paddling on the Opihi?

Could this run more fun more often. But then again is 15 cumecs enough?
