Makino floodgate update

The Makino floodgates were closed earlier this evening due to the rapid rise in river levels in the Makino.

This protects the Feilding township from further flooding by diverting flood waters.
The Moutoa floodgates may be opened early tomorrow morning, this has no effect on properties upstream of the floodgate but does protect those downstream of the Moutoa.
The rain is expected to continue into the evening and our team will be closely monitoring the situation for any changes, for further weather updates head to MetService.
