Back in October 2021 a firefighting water tank was placed in a terrible position at Hank Edwards Reserve. See Firefighting Water Tank at Hank Edwards Reserve for more.
We’re pleased to say the tank has now been moved a few metres to the west. It’s in among a clump of trees where it blends in much better. There is yet to be a marker of some kind to help the Fire Service locate it when it’s needed.
While we believe the community should have been consulted before it was placed, we’re pleased that Horowhenua District Council paid attention to the concerns of the affected residents and took swift action.
Photos now, and before.
