Installing a water tank is such a good drought-proofing idea that Eurobodalla Shire Council regulates that all new homes must have one.
Unfortunately the rebate that encouraged water tank retro-fits on existing homes in Eurobodalla Shire no longer exists.
Greens on council will call for the reinstatement of this rebate.
Catching water in tanks at home:
- helps to reduce the impact of urban stormwater runoff
- reduces demand for mains water which in turn saves on energy = emissions reductions!
- allows residents to use their own water supply on gardens in times of water restrictions
