The NZRCA and Todd Energy/King Country Energy confirm a release of 30 cumecs for the Mangahao river, between 9am and 3pm on Saturday 16 March. This release is one of the conditions of the resource consent for the Mangahao dam. Another condition of the consent is that the number of river users be recorded, so please ensure one of the NZRCA team (Alan Bell, Polly Miller, Graham McIntyre and others) have counted you before putting onto the river. The Mangahao is a scenic class III-IV run from the Number 2 Dam behind Shannon to a bridge behind Ekatahuna. Make sure your shuttle driver knows the way to the takeout, and have a safe weekend.
