Watercare rolls out solar-powered filling station for dry tanks

From Checkpoint, 5:55 pm on 23 February 2021

It's been another hot dry summer for Auckland, and for those on tank water it's been drying up quickly.

Watercare has rolled out a new mobile tanker to help fill the gap - while people wait for more decent rainfall.

As Checkpoint reporter Louise Ternouth and cameraman Nick Monro found out, Watercare is using a bit of Kiwi ingenuity - powered by the sun.
