Attempt made to revive Ruataniwha dam project

That's after they bought the assets and intellectual property for the ill-fated water storage scheme from the Hawke's Bay Regional Council for $100,000. Farmers are excited by the prospect but Forest and Bird is sceptical they'll be able to get it across the line. RNZ Hawke's Bay reporter Anusha Bradley has the details.
