WATER STORAGE AND FILTERING
The following is a excerpt from Wellington Water's website.
Wellington’s water supply network is vulnerable. After a significant earthquake many parts of our region may be without water for more than 100 days.
We're working with local councils and government to help make sure Wellington's communities are prepared, and ready to recover from a significant earthquake. Everyone has a role to play in being prepared.
