Auckland's water woes

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:25 pm on 1 March 2018

A popular Auckland swim race has had to change its venue over the state of the water.

King of the Bays traditionally goes from Milford Beach to Takapuna but there's concern the locations aren't safe for swimming due to ongoing issues. 

We discussed these issues earlier this month but there still seems to be problems. We get the latest from the swim race event director Scott Rice and an update from Auckland Council's healthy waters team.
