“Roaring Meg is a turbulent stream that drives a hydro-electric power station and merges with the Kawarau River, which runs between the towns of Cromwell and Queenstown on the South Island Of New Zealand.”
The Kawarau River is Lake Wakatipu's only outlet and flows to the east into Lake Dunstan near Cromwell. The Kawarau River runs for a large part along State Highway 6 when driving from Cromwell To Queenstown. Hydro electricity in New Zealand tends to be generated by big dams like Benmore Dam but not always. Many small power schemes were first developed in cooperation with gold mining, dredging, or irrigation companies. The source of power generation where Roaring Meg is located is a 10-meter (33 ft) high dam, which lies 3.6 km (2.2 mi) north of Roaring Meg. It feeds two power generating stations.
