Dry weather continues to bite in Hawke's Bay, with further irrigation restrictions.

Hawke's Bay Regional Council says it has imposed irrigation bans on the Waipawa and Tukituki rivers due a lack of rain and low water levels in the area.

Bans still continue for the Ngaruroro River at Whanawhana, and the Maraekakaho, Te Waikaha and Mangateretere streams.
