Waikaremoana

The Waikaremoana Power Scheme has 3 power stations that utilise water predominantly from Lake Waikaremoana.

The power scheme is among the oldest hydro schemes in the country with the main power station (Tuai) being commissioned in 1929.

River conditions can change very quickly, so the data is updated on this website every 15 minutes. Please monitor the conditions regularly before embarking on any water-based activities. Flow data is also available from the Genesis Energy flow phone 07 386 8113.

Note: the hydrology data on this website is provided for general information purposes only.  The data shows rainfall and river flow information, it is not a forecasting tool. River users should check rainfall and river flow data, alongside weather forecasts to make a decision about whether it is safe to enter waterways.
