The Ministry of Works has established a network of experimental basins to study the hydrological characteristics of important soil-vegetation complexes of New Zealand. The effect of cultural changes on these characteristics has also been studied. The Otutira Basin is situated on the north shore of Lake Taupo, 14 miles west of Taupo and 20 miles south of Managakino. The basin has an area of 741 acres and discharges into kawakawa Bay.
