    Northland town's water supply remains in jeopardy

    A small town's water supply remains in jeopardy as talks continue between the Far North District Council, Northland DHB and the private company running the reticulation system.


    Wai Care Environmental Consultants Whangaroa has notified its customers it will cease operating the Kaeo town drinking water supply in a fortnight..

    The private scheme supplies 10 businesses, nine homes and four community buildings, including public toilets.

    Spokesman Bryce Smith has told customers new legislative requirements and drinking water standards have made it too costly to maintain the service.

    Kaeo's town water supply was originally owned by the council - but was sold in 2000 to the Doubtless Bay Water Company, which then sold it to Wai Care in 2008.
