what is wrong with some people?!?!?!?

Everyday on the way back from the bus stop I drive by this one house. Everyday they have there sprinklers on and are watering the grass. everyday there is rivers of water flowing over the sidewalk and down into the drain where it is rushing towards the drain. The can see this river of excess 2 blocks before you reach the house!!!

We have water restrictions, have to pay extra when we go over our allotment and such and I heard the other day, it is yet again another drought year (how with all the snow and rain we got I have no idea , but that is not the point here).

We all need to work together to help the environment. I don't care if you have the money to pay for the extra water; we need to share with the fish and the birds. Watering your grass everyday, after the sun is high in the air, and letting the water free flow does not help you at all. SO please lets all remember to water after dark or in the wee hours of the morning, water a maximum of 3 times a week, and water for 5 to 10 minutes. and if it rains, or we see the water free flowing down the sidewalk, turn the water off!!!
