Tongariro River Recreational Release (Access 10)

April 22, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Genesis Energy will provide a recreational release of the Tongariro River section below Poutu dam & Intake. This section is known as Access 10 (A10)

Flows of 30 cubic metres per second for 6 hours will be released from Poutu Intake into the Tongariro River between 9am and 3pm.

Location – Poutu Dam (Get-in), Kaimanawa Rd off Desert Rd (Map)

Stop the spread of freshwater pests!

All equipment that has come from any other fresh waterway (regardless of island) must be decontaminated using approved methods (see CheckCleanDry) before entering the river.

Please do not rely on the ‘dry’ method alone as the inside of kayaks take a very long time to dry out!

Cleaning solution is available at the entry and exit points during recreational releases.
