The gurudwara made two bores of 930 feet deep to get enough drinking water for the local community. The in-house water tanks will provide the water supply for emergencies, regular supply to the gurdwara complex, the veggie gardens, childcare centre, for the elders as a part of the Care Project.
“It [water tanks] will save $60-75 thousand each year to the Supreme Sikh Society of NZ,” Daljit Singh, spokesperson for the Supreme Sikh Society said.
The water treatment plant established by ‘Think Water’ costs half a million dollars to connect two bores, treatment plants, irrigation, and supply the water to the facility.
Some of the senior members of the community expressed their satisfaction with the project and the long-term benefits for the community.
NZ Civil Defense also expressed their interest in making this facility a community hub.
