Comment: The flow at the location Wairoa at Irvines was traditionally measured by a flow recorder located just below the confluence of the Wairoa and Lee rivers. This recorder has been replaced by individual recorders on the Wairoa, Lee and Roding Rivers.
The flow currently published as “Wairoa at Irvines” is the sum of the three upstream tributaries, and is considered by Council to be a continuation of the original flow site.
