Waikato River clean-up cash attracts 60 bids

8:42 pm on 6 November 2012

They're asking for a total of $10.4 million, but there's only $6 million of funds available from the Waikato River Authority.

Far less money is being sought this year - last year bidders proposed spending $56 million.

Successful applicants will be told before Christmas.

The Government has committed $220 million to the authority over the next 30 years.
