Aucklanders breaking water use records

From Morning Report, 8:39 am on 26 February 2020

Watercare says it's growing increasingly concerned by Auckland's skyrocketing water use.

Peak demand records for the region were broken three times last week, with Aucklanders using more than 560 million litres in just one day.

The demand is putting a huge strain on Aucklands water treatment plants and networks.

The head of Water Value for Watercare is Roseline Klein.

She speaks to Susie Ferguson.
