KCE is required to maintain a minimum flow in the river. A 33kV line owned by KCE links the Wairere Power Station to Mokauiti.

Environment and recreation

KCE undertake extensive fish monitoring and fish passage development. These programs are required under their current resource consent, and this has led KCE to become an expert in effective simple fish transfer systems.

During a typical spring, more than 500 migrating eels successfully bypass KCE stations, using the fish passages KCE has built. These eels migrate to the oceans where their young (elvers) are born.

Following birth, the elvers begin migrating back up the rivers through the upstream passages. Each year more than 220,000 elvers safely move upstream past the KCE power stations.
