Poll: Do you support council turning on splashpads in the drought?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

All seven council-owned splashpads across Tāmaki Makaurau will be open over the summer, despite water restrictions in place due to the drought.

Meanwhile, locals will be pinged for using a hose without the correct nozzle.

The council says splashpads recycle a high percentage of water, and the centres themselves have made significant water savings in the last nine months.
