Waikato-Tainui is assuring councils it will hold them to account over decisions to allocate water from its awa.

The Auckland Council is in talks with Hamilton to receive its unused allocation of water from the Waikato River.

But Waikato-Tainui is yet to receive any direct correspondence from the Auckland Council.

Māni Dunlop speaks with Rukumoana Schaafhausen, the chair of Te Arataura - Waikato-Tainui's executive board.
