Industry News – Increased demand for water tanks in Port Macquarie Region
The Port Macquarie News has reported that lead times for delivery of water tanks has almost doubled off the back of increased demand due to the drought crisis.
Managing director of Bushmans Tanks NSW Chris Glenn said the delay in filling orders was also due to road restrictions on some NSW roads. “The demand is basically right across our entire footprint but it is certainly higher in NSW.”
The demand for tanks hasn’t been this high since prior to the GFC in 2008, according to Peter Vallentine from Water Tanks and More. “People are getting concerned about water supply with Port Macquarie-Hastings Council now at level 3 water restrictions and looking at level 4.”
