    Auckland's water drought is getting a small boost from Pukekohe's water bores

    Auckland's water drought is getting a small boost from Pukekohe's water bores

    They've been out of action since 2013, and Watercare has started drawing up to five million litres a day from the Hickeys water treatment plant.

    Acting chief executive Marlon Bridge says the return of the bores puts Auckland in a good position heading into summer.

    He says it will help by lessening the city's reliance on dam sources.

    The dams are 67.5 percent full today.
