Do you use water standpipes?

We currently provide public access to 13 water bores across the municipality. They need upgrading with an anticipated cost of $390,000. Before we make a decision about investing in upgrades, we're doing some research to find out who is using them, what for and what impact any changes would have. Survey is open until 28 February 2019.
