when you come to wellington you only need to buy one bottle of water. free refills that are as good or better are available for free – from the tap.
with big mountain ranges surrounding wellington there is plenty of great water for now, but the council website discusses plans and options to accommodate growth:
New water efficiency options
We are also investigating whether new water efficiency measures could put off the need to build a major new water source, and what that might involve. Metering of households is one such measure.
cracked me up. i totally believe in all resources being metered so consumers have visibility to their costs – but it was just another example of how unspoiled nz still is. so much clean water that it is not worth metering.
