Hopua te Nihotetea Detention Dam Webcam
This webcam lets people check the operation of the Hopua te Nihotetea Detention Dam. The camera captures the inlet and upstream side of the dam.
The dam is designed to rapidly capture floodwater during heavy rain to lessen the severity of major flooding, then slowly release it back into the Raumanga Stream over several days.
