Drought

Original post made by yApR on Jul 13, 2014

The other day I had gone to Walmart and there is this big grassy area on the left as you drive in to the parking lot from Owens Drive. At full blast were the sprinklers, releasing jets of water.

Isn't Walmart under no obligation to conserve water? Is it recycled water they are using?

I've seen the same thing. All that water for an area that is used for NOTHING. And in the meantime we have to cut back. This whole water thing is a mess. I see several buildings in the business park with sprinklers going full blast in the middle of the day and flooding the streets.
Why doesn't the city start with those people first. I imagine they are wasting way more water than the residents!
If I get a bill with fines imposed I will insist on knowing what fines these businesses had.

Write to your elected reps. It's important that they be advised. Otherwise, you can complain until the cows come home and NADA!

Americans would benefit if they put the pressure on their elected reps.

Don't give them $, ignore them when they come up for re-election, and let them live out their lives happily ever after just not on your dime!

If they ignore you, tell your story the press...it can be a start to feeling more empowered.

Again cholo only offers nonsense. Our townhouse neighborhood is letting all grass die, even though we each pay our own water bills, and many of us individuals are already very 'low water users'. But they've decided 'for us owners' to let our grass die. Then, no doubt, will increase our dues when they have to re-sod next year.
btw 'the city' is the biggest waster all along that Hacienda neighborhood...NOT know-it-all pest, who really knows nothing...just mimicking vile attackers. I'll stick with WalMart...I watch my pennies, not like mouthy ones, who live off our tax dollars.

Yapper sounds like a Walmart basher. What he doesn't realize is that companies like Walmart fulfill the American dream. Where else can you make hundreds of billions in profit and have American taxpayers supplement the average Walmart worker with food stamps? God bless America. God bless Walmart. God bless the Walmart family. God bless American taxpayers for bailing out minimum wage workers with supplementary federal assistance allotments.
