Read the Plan Change (357 kB).
Proposed Plan Change 1 seeks to amend the WCWARP to allow Lake Pukaki to be managed for emergency electricity supply for New Zealand or the South Island by permitting the Lake to be operated between the levels of 513 m (amsl) and 518 m (amsl) during times of independently determined electricity shortage. To achieve this, proposed Plan Change 1 includes amendments to Policy 36 and Rules 3 and 17 of the WCWARP.
