A recent research project involving the Bushfire Cooperative Research
Centre (Bushfire CRC) and the CSIRO has revealed that different
types of rainwater tanks can play an important role in defending
houses against the threat of a bushfire.
The research project was conducted in the NSW Rural Fire Service
experimental research facility at Mogo on the south coast of NSW.
The research investigated the effects of typical Australian bushfire
exposures on both residential and commercial water tanks of steel
and plastic construction.
The project received support and cooperation from BlueScope Water.
