Low water tank level
Due to a dry summer over 2022/23, the water tank at this hut is running low. There’s an increased risk of contamination and water may not be available at times.
You may need to carry water with you or collect it from a stream. Bring equipment to treat water (eg tablets, filter) and bottles to transport extra water.
Boil water before use
Water at this hut is not treated and needs to be boiled before use. High rat numbers on Stewart Island/Rakiura increase the risk of tank water being contaminated.
