Kawerau chlorination halt could last months - mayor

From Morning Report, 6:18 am on 30 January 2019

The Mayor of Kawerau says temporarily halting chlorination of the town's water supply could last weeks, or even months. Residents have complained about yellowy-brown tap water and discoloured pipes, since chlorination began in 2018. On Tuesday, the Kawerau council announced it was stopping this to flush the system. Mayor Malcolm Campbell told Katie Doyle they will reconsider how the town's water supply is chlorinated further down the track.
