BETTER LOCATION: Looking north-east from Vinegar Hill Rd toward the Glenbervie Forest where opponents of the Ngunguru dam site say a dam at Mangahahuru, near Kauri, would be a better location to supply Whangarei with water in the future.

Mayor Stan Semenoff has ordered the Whangarei District Council to go back to the drawing board with investigations for a new water source.

He says the council made a mistake when it chose the Ngunguru River as the preferred option for a dam without consulting affected residents.

Upper Ngunguru river residents – whose properties could be flooded and land use restricted if the dam goes ahead – were concerned they had not been consulted.

About 50 people held a meeting recently to voice their concerns and question the council.

Meeting chairman Matt Long, a farmer in the catchment area, says people overwhelming[ly] felt the Ngunguru River was not the right place for a dam.
