The damming of the Mokau will affect all ww kayakers and rafters. King Country Energy plan to create a dam which will flood forever a 5-7km stretch of NZ's whitewater which has been run for over 50 years and which contains numerous named and unnamed grade 2-4 rapids including the well-known "Little Huka".
