The process for applying for and using fire hydrants for the
purpose of filling water tankers has changed.
When someone fills from one of our standard hydrants there
is a risk that they may inadvertently contaminate the water supply if the
correct equipment is not used. To reduce this risk, the Council has installed
seven dedicated ‘Tanker Filling Points’ throughout the district with the
purpose of providing water for construction activities. These Tanker Filling
Points have permanent backflow prevention devices installed. This ensures that
the water supplies will remain protected, without requiring that Contractors
provide their own hydrant upstand with built in backflow prevention.
It is important to note that no other fire hydrants may be
used, other than the seven dedicated tanker filling points, without explicit
permission being granted by Council.
If you wish to use these new filling points please fill out
the application below. This form also sets out the
conditions of use of the filling points. Once approved a 12 month permit to use
the dedicated Tanker Filling Points will be granted, which can be re-applied
