Kaikohe locals welcome news of new reservoir

From Morning Report, 8:18 am on 29 October 2020

Kaikohe locals are warily welcoming news that the town is to get a new water reservoir.

Earlier this year all of Northland was placed under mandatory water restrictions as the entire region experienced extreme drought.

Construction of a reservoir to serve Kaikohe and surrounding farms is now being fast-tracked but is still at least a couple of years away.
