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
