Checked the dam out today, it is quite substantial in size. The lower wairau gets much of its water from spirngs and only a small amount from surface flow, so what the council did would achieve next to nothing apart from reducing the flow in the diversion.
Good to hear a few Kahawai are about…. Were they all hooked in the sea or in the river?
Did not see any Kahawai schools while out diving in Port underwood.
