Genesis Energy will be undertaking an inspection of the Whakapapa-Whanganui Tunnel during which time no water will be diverted into the tunnel.  As a result, flows will be higher on the Whakapapa, Mangatepopo, Okupata, Tawhitikuri and Taurewa Rivers.  Note: This includes flows at the Okupata Caves.


The work is planned from:


  • Monday 12th March until Friday 16th March 2018


Whilst the works are planned to be finished by Friday 16th March, they may continue after this date for a short period if maintenance is required.  Please be aware that the flows are subject to natural fluctuation (e.g. weather events). Please feel free to share this information with other river users (i.e. via website or social media pages).


If you have any questions or require further information, please contact Chris Ormandy on 07 384 7209 or chris.ormandy@genesisenergy.co.nz
