Council offers emergency water supply tanks for sale

People in Horowhenua can now buy an emergency water supply tank from Horowhenua District Council.

The 200 litre tanks come in green or grey and are available for $105, which covers the cost of the tanks to Council.

Council ordered 36 of the tanks following a suggestion on social media by a member of the public, who had seen the tanks advertised by Porirua City Council and recommended them for Horowhenua.

Water Services Engineer Albert Hoffmann said the tanks are an investment in water security that will increase the resilience of households, particularly during water restrictions or civil defence emergencies.

He said Council will order more tanks if there is high demand.

People can buy the tanks from Council reception at the Civic Building, 126 Oxford Street, Levin.

Installation is the purchaser’s responsibility.
