'Major crisis': Gisborne residents urgently told to stop using water
Gisborne residents have been asked to stop using water immediately after the region's water plant failed. The back-up plant on the Waipaoa River has crashed, meaning the area only has a limited amount of water left in its reservoir. A navy vessel anchored offshore on Friday could turn 15,000 litres of saltwater into drinking water a day, but that was only a fraction of the city's needs. A state of emergency was declared for Tairwhiti region on Monday morning.
