Auckland’s once-depleted water storage dams have recovered to normal levels, and restrictions on water use will soon be reviewed, Stuff reveals. The dams have reached 90.2% full, having bounced back from being just half-full in early May thanks to reduced consumption, rainfall, and boosted supply from the Waikato River. It is the first time in 20 months the dams have hit the 90% milestone. Auckland Council’s governing body meets at the end of October to make decisions on easing the remaining water restrictions.
