Lake Whakatipu / Wakatipu at Frankton Bay

Water in Lake Whakatipu / Wakatipu is generally safe for recreational activities. However, bacterial contamination can occur, commonly after rainfall, as run-off may contain human or animal effluent.

In the Shotover River, flows above 18 cumecs generally indicate substantial rainfall has fallen in the catchment.
