We understand a large part of our community is staying at home and relying on water to stay hydrated and for regular handwashing and hygiene during these unprecedented times.
As a precaution, we’re recommending people have some water stored at home in case of an outage. As a general rule of thumb, allow for around 10 litres per person.
If you’re filling your own containers, it’s a good idea to use food-grade jerry cans and refresh them every three months. Store them away from chemicals in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
During water outages our teams carry a small supply of bottled water in their vehicles for customers in difficult circumstances.
If you’ve lost water as part of an unplanned water outage and you can’t access bottled water or don’t have any stored at home, we encourage you to get in touch with us.
