The CSIRO, Australia's national science agency, is currently undertaking a study on the physical condition of rainwater tanks in Melbourne. As part of the study, free assessments of rainwater tanks will be offered to participants.
The assessment involves answering a 10-15 minute survey, followed by a 20-30 minute assessment of your tank by a trained CSIRO personnel, at the end of which you will receive a complimentary report on its physical condition.
If you're interested in taking part in the study, or would like more information please visit: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZY3PK89.
The study is co-funded by the Smart Water Fund. The information from the study will be used by water planners in Melbourne to help estimate water savings and environmental benefits from rainwater tanks, and will also help identify public health risks. Participants will not be identifiable in any reports or datasets produced from the research.
