Tongariro Riverflow

Water is utilised from rivers in the Tongariro, Whangaehu, Rangitikei and Whanganui catchments.

River flows can vary quickly and it is a good idea to check the weather forecast and assess flow conditions on the river before heading out. In some river systems, rainfall in headwater catchments will result in rapid increases in river levels downstream where there may be little rainfall.
