From Morning Report, 7:23 am on 18 February 2021

Unsafe lead levels have been detected in children's blood tests in east Otago.

This following a contamination scare which has resulted in a do not drink notice and emergency water tankers.

Dunedin City Council says it may now be months before the notice is lifted for the residents of Waikouaiti, Karitane and Hawksbury Village.

Timothy Brown went along to last night's Waikouaiti Coast Community Board meeting.
