    Opuha Dam operators want to reassure people in South Canterbury - they're safe

    Opuha Dam operators want to reassure people in South Canterbury - they're safe


    Opuha Dam operators want to reassure people in South Canterbury - they're safe.

    They've been checking for erosion after discoloured water was spotted flowing from drains at the base of the dam.

    The 50 metre-high dam near Fairlie holds over 74 million cubic metres of water.

    Opuha Chief Executive Andrew Mockford says there's no need for concern.

    He says they've flown in overseas experts - and are taking extra precautions while they investigate.
