These exceptionally clear waters appear from springs in the Mamaku Hills, forming the beginning of the Waihou River, the lower reaches of which were named the River Thames by the navigator James Cook in 1769-70. Most impurities in the waters are filtered as they permeate through the volcanic rocks of the Mamakus. The nearby small Waikato town of Putaruru takes it water supply just a little downstream from this spot.
