Lee- that seems to be an authoritarian remark; shouldn't we, the PEOPLE, vote on that?

Saw the South Mission center median being watered this morning with water flowing on South Mission pavement. I think they should've waited to see if it would rain this week. If it doesn't, THEN they should water the plants. Just my thought.

I was about to water this morning because it's been awhile & even the drought resistant plants are looking weary. Then I heard the news of rain coming & decided to wait for the free stuff. I don't have my sprinklers set to a timer.

if you water while it is raining your yard will get the extra water, especially the drip system. Keep it flowing.

@ #8 observant

So what? Whether it's reclaimed water or not, we must still conserve. Your irresponsible thinking is PRECISELY the type of mindset why we this planet is in an ecological mess that it is: "We can do whatever the heck we want."

No, we can't. We do NOT have infinite resources. We CANNOT simply do as we please. Those days are long, long gone. We MUST conserve every precious drop of water that we can. Please do your part. Thank you.

Maybe Lee would like to have that precious reclaimed water piped directly into his house so he can do his dishes by hand (which wastes more than a new dishwasher) or MAYBE even drink it, if he wants to conserve so much. How about it Lee? PLEASE We the people want to see it!!!!

For heavens sake Lee, it is r-e-c-l-a-i-m-e-d water....RECLAIMED, for once in your life look something up!! Even if you don't have a dictionary, and I assume you don't, at least check it out on line!!! I think you may be savvy enough to at least do that....god willing

Technically Lee is correct. We should conserve reclaimed water too but if they don't have any other local use for the reclaimed water then letting some run down the street doesn't really hurt anything.
