We hear in the news that the Army has now been called on to deliver water further north. To start with to community facilities and marae in the Kaitaia area but possibly other areas later. The coastal aquifers north of us are also getting dangerously low.
I also read this morning that when the milk tankers leave Whangarei to collect milk they will be carrying water and then returning with milk. What a great idea. I have noticed a lot of water tankers around here in the last weeks also some flat top trucks with a tank on top.
On Tuesday Doug and Gillian went for a walk to see the Whangarei Falls. There is still a fair amount of water going over but is quite a difference between Tuesday (above) and August (below).
Yesterday we went to Mair Park where it was lovely and cool (and green). Two views from the bridge.
