Genesis Energy

Updated (Saturday 23 September, 8:07am): Whakapapa is flowing, 17cu.

Updated (Friday 22 September, 7:52pm): At this stage we are hopeful that the no-take natural flow will proceed tomorrow, with a final call to be published here at approx 6.45am Saturday morning. Minimum flow to proceed is 16 cumecs and it will be close to and hopefully above that level. Remember to check clean and dry.

This is a backup "no-take" day for deferred Whakapapa natural flow, Saturday 2 September.

Recreational releases from Whakapapa Intake require 16 cumecs or natural flow, whichever is greater. If the expected 16 cumecs is not reached on the planned day of the event, then it is deferred to the back-up day. If there is still insufficient flow on the back-up day, then the event is cancelled.
