Get a water tank to get you through

If a large earthquake strikes Wellington there is a possibility that your home’s water supply may be cut off for weeks, maybe even months.
The Wellington Regional Emergency Management Office (WREMO), along with councils across the region, has organised the sale of an affordable 200 litre water tank that can attach to your house and collect rain water. It’s also a great back-up supply for the garden in summer.
So far around 1300 tanks have been sold and demand is high.
WREMO worked with a local supplier to make the tanks available for $105, and they can be purchased from the Council service centre on Wakefield Street, as well as other councils across the region. Comparable tanks of this size can retail for $250.   More information
