Encyclopedia > Lake Dunstan

Lake Dunstan is located in the South Island of New Zealand.

The lake was formed on the Clutha River as a result of the construction of the Clyde Dam during the 1990s. Parts of the town of Cromwell were relocated to a new area above the new lake.

Lake Dunstan provides irrigation for nearby stone fruit orchards and vineyards, and is a major recreational asset, with facilities for jet boating waterskiing, fishing, parapenting, and rowing.

Lake Dunstan, which is formed by the Clyde dam and is situated between Lakes Roxburgh and Hawea, commenced filling in 1992.
In 1957, shortly after Lake Roxburgh was filled a flood of 2570m3/sec produced a water level of 136.68m at Alexandra, and in 1994 a lesser flood of 2340m3/sec produced a higher water level of 140.03m.
Lake Dunstan has a normal operating range of 1m and therefore the sediment accumulation is not a restriction on the run-of-river hydro power generation.
