Water Limit Order Shuts Down City Splash Pads

In case you haven't heard, Mayor Bartlett called for outdoor water restrictions yesterday. For more information, click here to go to an article in the Tulsa World.

Not to be completely insensitive because I know that it is definitely necessary, but the first thing I thought of were the splash pads. So, I called the Mayor's Action Hotline this morning and my greatest fear was realized....they are all shut down "until heat subsides."

Actually, they are all shut down except for the one at 41st & Riverside. That specific one recycles the water.  So, I guess I will see you all there sometime in the next month because I don't forsee the heat subsiding anytime before then.

P.S. Have you all noticed how cranky everyone is? Jeez, I got flipped off on Sunday for reasons unknown to me.  We are all in this together people! Let's try and keep it together.

Hmmm - I hope that recycled water gets filtered! :)

Shame about splash pads in lower income areas being shut down, especially as many of those families have no other way to keep cool and/or entertain children.

I thought the same thing...I thought I smelled chlorine in it. I'm sure for many parents and children alike, school can't start soon enough!
