    Water restrictions are still in place in the Far North as it struggles with drought

    Water restrictions are still in place in the Far North as it struggles with drought


    NIWA reports rain across the North Island last week took some pressure off drought-stricken areas.

    But Far North Mayor John Carter says the rain they've had hasn't been enough to make a significant difference.

    He says people should continue to restrict their water use and look after others.
