Buying water

What if my water tank runs out of water?

If you run out of water there are bulk water carriers registered to use a Council filling point and deliver drinking water in your area. This is not a Council service and we do not take any responsibility for the quality of water once it leaves the filling station point. 

We recommend that you ask your carrier for written confirmation that they have sourced the water from the Council’s supply and that it meets Ministry of Health standards, or you can find a list of local suppliers here - Register of NZ Water Carriers (drinkingwater.org.nz)

During periods of low rainfall, people on tank water should do their bit to save water. Refills are coming from the Council’s community supply and it is in everyone’s interest to save water and prolong the supply.
