Recreational releases will be taking place on the Tongariro River this weekend.  The first release will be from Poutu Intake on Saturday with a target flow of 30 cumecs at the Intake.  This release will mean increased flows and water levels for the lower section of the Tongariro River including Turangi.  On Sunday, 30 cumecs is planned to be released from Rangipo Dam.  This is a grade 4 rapid where if paddling, you must know the take out locations before Tree trunk gorge and Waikato falls.  There will be no change in flow on the lower section of the Tongariro associated with this release.  Have fun and be safe!

 

Thanks!
