The water tank at Hank Edwards Reserve

You may have spotted the new green 20,000 litre water tank that has been placed on Hank Edwards Reserve near the toilet block. Now we know where that’s come from:

Horowhenua District Council is improving firefighting capacity for local communities who aren’t on mains water supply.

This investment will see the installation of nine water tanks, distributed to Hōkio Beach, Manakau, Waikawa Beach and Waitārere Beach.

Eight of the nine tanks are additional resources for firefighters when needing water. The remaining tank will replace existing infrastructure. …

“The tanks are fitted with a standard NZ Fire Service coupling. This allows firefighters to connect to the water supply easily if required.”

Council will receive over $4million of funding to help support the investment into Three Water assets in the community. A portion of this has been allocated to increase firefighting capacity in rural communities. …
