Waihi schools closed due to severe water shortage

From Morning Report, 8:20 am on 13 February 2020

All Waihi schools, except Waihi Beach, will be closed today due to the town's water shortage.

A burst water pipe left Waihi without water yesterday for a short period. A precautionary boil water notice is in place, and restrictions around washing, showering and drinking remain.

Toby Adams is the Mayor of the Hauraki District.

He speaks to Corin Dann.
