Napier's strained water system

From The Panel, 4:15 pm on 6 September 2018

Napier residents are being asked not to flush the toilet or take baths to reduce the strain on the wastewater system after torrential rain.

It's not the first time Napier's aging system has been overloaded.

We talk to Napier local and writer Andrew Frame about the on-going issues.
