WARNING: RIVER LEVEL INCREASE
FLOW CHANGE IN THE MOAWHANGO AND RANGITIKEI RIVER
Genesis Energy's resource consents for the Tongariro Power
Scheme require flushing flow releases from Moawhango Dam.
This release is the third of four releases for the summer of
2011-2012. The purpose of the flushing flow is to improve the ecology
of the river. As the Moawhango River flows into the Rangitikei River,
the flushing flow will result in an increased flow in both rivers.
The flows will be 30 cubic metres per second for 9 hours (flows
are released Tuesday 9pm to Wednesday 6am from Moawhango
Dam). The flushing flow will result in an increased flow in both the
Moawhango River (from Moawhango Dam) and the Rangitikei River
on the following date:
• Wednesday 22nd February
Please ensure anyone using these rivers is aware of these ﬂ ow changes
If you have any questions or require further information please
contact Bonny Lawrence on 07 3847246 or visit the Genesis Energy

The Department of Conservation (DOC) is in
the process of revolutionising the way in which
visitors can access information about the
Tongariro Alpine Crossing -- by putting a DOC
ranger in their pocket.
A new Smart Phone application, the Pocket
Ranger -- developed and launched by DOC, in
partnership with Turangi-based community
group Project Tongariro -- will transform the
way visitors access important information at
Tongariro National Park.
As well as supplying vital details about the
Tongariro Alpine Crossing -- including mapping,
interpretation, and safety messages -- the
Pocket Ranger provides local information on
accommodation, activities, transport, guiding,
dining and more.
DOC Community Relations Officer David
Conley says DOC and Project Tongariro made a
significant investment in developing the Pocket
Ranger because it benefits both parties.
''It adds value to the visitors' experience,
DOC gets out its important safety and conser-
vation messages, and Project Tongariro gains
profile and generates funds that flow back into
local conservation projects,'' he said.
The application has also been developed for
use as a 'template' that can be easily adapted
for use in other great walks, national parks,
cycle ways and mountain biking tracks.
''The Pocket Ranger will enhance visitor
experiences, increase community input into
conservation, and increase exposure for local
''This is the way DOC wants to work -- engag-
ing with, and providing support to, the com-
munity to provide so much more.''
