Water under review in Matata this week

The Whakatane District Council will this week review whether water conservation measures need to continue at Matata.

The council appealed to Matata residents on Friday to use water sparingly and not use sprinklers.

High demand was placing a strain on the supply.

Council Public Affairs manager Ross Boreham says at present there are no issues over water in Whakatane and Ohope.
