We understand that some people who rely on rain tanks are worried about running out of water due to the dry weather and high demand placed on private tanker operators. Our operational team is making 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.
We are in close contact with Auckland Council and fully support the actions they are taking to provide relief to our rural communities. As information becomes available from Council, we will provide links to it from this page.
