Muriwai flooding

From Morning Report, 6:51 am on 3 July 2023

After another weekend of heavy rain, residents of a popular West Auckland surf spot are looking for permanent solutions to flooding.

People in Muriwai say some driveways have been flooded and flood-altered waterways are moving water across roads and onto properties.

Chairperson of the Muriwai Stickered Residents Group Mike Hibbert says silt protection walls to direct water away from houses and into gullies could be a solution.

Mike Hibbert spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
