EPA under fire about 'harmful discharge' at Kupe

From Morning Report, 7:47 am on 15 May 2023

The Environmental Protection Authority is under fire for withholding information about a leak at a suspended oil and gas well-head at Kupe off the coast of Taranaki.

It's taken five years, two official information requests and a complaint to the Ombudsman for the agency to release details of its investigation.

RNZ's Taranaki Whanganui reporter Robin Martin has the story.
