July 2017 flooding event
The HL is at the highest level yet seen due to the exceptional rainfall event. See photos in the Photo Gallery.

Scotia Street causeway upgrade

All the causeways have now been upgraded thanks to a donation from the Waikouaiti Coast Community Board, and the limechip provided at a reduced cost from East Otago Engineering. The physical labour was provided by men completing their community hours. A great effort, thank you everyone.

To assist in our work at the HL we have a range of photo cards for sale.


There are 5 different cards plus envelopes for $10. They are blank inside and therefore useful for a range of occasions. Below is a sample of the photos on the cards. These cards can be purchased at the Waikouaiti Library, Hammer Hardware (Waikouaiti) or by e-mailing t.mckewen@clear.net.nz 


In addition donations to our projects at the lagoon are always welcome and very much appreciated.


Donations can be made to: Acc 03 1737 0020799 00.
