Areas with rain tanks

We understand that some people who rely on rain tanks are worried about running out of water due to the dry weather. Our operational team continues to make every effort to ensure our tanker filling stations are open 24/7.

From time-to-time we have to close filling stations or reduce their flow rates due to unforeseen circumstances (e.g. power outages) or low reservoir levels. Low reservoir levels can impact connected customers as well as fire fighting operations. We understand the importance of our filling stations to many Auckland communities and therefore will keep these closures to an absolute minimum.
