Artificial Fresh – 6th April 2017

By 4 April 2017August 9th, 2021Events, Featured

Due to high levels of phormidium in the Opuha Gorge, Opuha Water Ltd is planning on carry out an “artificial fresh” on the Opuha river. It is our aim to coincide the artificial fresh with the rain event which is forecast for later in the week, the high river flows generated by the rain would allow any algae to be taken out to sea. We will be aiming for a peak flow of around 60 cumecs in the Opuha River, so any public are advised to stay clear of the Opuha and Opihi Rivers and their banks from Thursday afternoon until midday Friday.

If you require any information in relation to the above, please contact Craig Moore (Operations & Asset Manager) on 027 460 9721.
