Manapouri Tailrace Amended Discharge: A review of the effects of the MTAD proposal on surface navigation and marine safety in Deep Cove : Final report / Tom Sawyer. - 2009.
This report assesses the effects of Meridian Energy's Manapouri Tailrace Amended Discharge (MTAD) proposal on the recreation and tourism values of Lakes Te Anau and Manapouri, the Lower Waiau River and Doubtful Sound/Patea. The Manapouri Power Station (MPS) currently operates at a set point maximum discharge of 485 m3/s. Meridian is seeking to increase the maximum tailrace discharge limit to 550 m3/s. Of interest to recreation and tourism are the potential effects on: . Surface water currents and wave formation in Deep Cove and Doubtful Sound, . Lake levels in Lakes Te Anau and Manapouri, and . Flows in the Lower Waiau River. There will be no changes to the hydro management of the Upper Waiau River, and changes to the flow regime in the Waiau Arm will be insufficient to be noticed by any recreational visitor.
