AK water blasting businesses pleased with easing restrictions

From First Up, 5:37 am on 13 October 2020

Auckland water blasting businesses are sighing with relief, now that the region's water restrictions have been eased for commercial users. But the region's water woes are far from over. The area's dams are sitting 24 percentage points lower than normal for this time of year and the council is not ruling out restrictions being re-imposed or limits becoming the norm for every summer. Brian Edwards - who runs a blasting washing business in Red Beach - rallied against the water restrictions when they were first imposed, saying the tap had been turned off on businesses. He told our reporter Jean Bell it's a big relief to be back to work.
