The measurements are shown in metres above sea level. The minimum consented level of Lake Waitaki is 227.0m. Levels above 230.8m result in water discharging over the concrete weir.
These levels shown are provisional and are indicative only and for general information purposes, and do not try to show what actual levels will be at any particular time or place. If you intend to use the hydro lakes for any recreational or other purpose, please ensure that your activity can be safely carried out if the actual water levels change.
