Government-owned Meridian Energy propose to construct a $250 million 85MW dam on the wild and scenic Mōkihinui river. The Mōkihinui offers excellent whitewater kayaking in classic West Coast backcountry. The proposal would inundate an entire class III-IV section from Mōkihinui Forks down to Seddonville. It would effectively eliminate the upstream class IV-V section from the Johnson-Allan confluence by replacing the lower run with a 14km lake.
