PARKS AND DEP Announce The Installation of Timed Spray Showers At All NYC Playgrounds.

NYC Parks & Recreation Commissioner Adrian Benepe and Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Commissioner Carter Strickland announce the installation of timers and activation buttons at City playground spray showers, a water conservation strategy that ensures the showers are activated only when in use.

The timers will aid the citywide effort to reduce water consumption by 5% as part of DEP’s Water for the Future program.
