Water-tank advocate calls for incentives
By Chris Morris
Dunedin woman Lyndall Hancock says rooftop rainwater harvesting should be encouraged by the Dunedin City Council.
Council water and waste services manager John Mackie said the council did not offer incentives, such as rates relief, to promote the use of tanks, and funds from the levy were already allocated to other waste-minimisation projects. He believed it would be difficult to build an economic argument for the council to invest in rainwater tanks in urban areas.
