Updated Friday 21 September, 8:15pm: no rain, so no go sorry folks. Its been a dry week and flows are well below the minimum level so we now look the the fourth of four Saturdays in September scheduled for the Whakapapa no take. Put it in your calendar, 29th September - and lets hope for a rainy week!
(Backup day for 1 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.
