Meridian investigates Mokihinui hydro dam


Meridian Energy has applied for resource consents to prospect for potential hydro dam sites on the West Coast’s Mokihinui river. The Mokihinui offers several challenging back-country kayaking runs including a multi-day option. The proposed 57m head, 70MW scheme would create a lake on the mainstem extending from Mokihinui Forks hut to just above Seddonville.
