Contractors have been working through the night to fix a major leak in Gisborne's water supply. The Gisborne District Council revealed on Thursday just 24 hours of water was left in its reservoir storage after a major leak was discovered in a pipeline. Meng Foon is the Gisborne District Council Mayor. He tells Guyon Espiner workers overnight have fixed the leak, caused by a broken rubber ring.
