Upcoming water releases

Water releases and changes to lake levels

Every year we receive numerous requests for changes to water levels and river flows, and when and where possible, we will try to safely accommodate the requests.

 

Requests for water releases cover a range of areas - everything from helping irrigators following below average rains; bolstering a town's water supply to support water-based events for rowers, canoeists, kayakers; to training exercises for emergency service personnel.

Upcoming water releases

Please note:
Approved water releases are subject to our terms and conditions which can be found on our request form. The person responsible for the request must assess if the desired water flow is appropriate for the intended activity or use and undertakes such at their own risk.

The details of a water release can change at any time. We reserve the right to cancel a water release at any time due to safety or operational reasons and have no liability for any impacts or loss incurred as a result.

Before setting out, it's important to read the terms and conditions, check water levels and plan your trip accordingly.
