About the Event
Orakei Korako Cave and Thermal Park is a popular geothermal destination, a thirty-minute drive from central Taupō.
The Orakei Korako geothermal system is a Protected Geothermal System located approximately 6 km from the Ngā Tamariki geothermal field - itself a Development Geothermal System. Although at the time of the Ngā Tamariki power station consenting phase, it was accepted that these two fields were separate, given the relatively small separation distance, and in light of the high cultural, scientific, tourism and geodiversity values associated with Orakei Korako, the “potential” that these two systems were hydraulically connected in some way was a Ngā Tamariki development risk that could have resulted in significantly adverse consequences.
During this trip to Orakei Korako we will hear about the considerations taken into account, methods and continued testing that assures Iwi and the general public that the Orakei Korako System and its natural features remain fully protected.
This event is limited to NZGA members and / or attendees of the NZGA Winter Seminar. Please register to attend.
