Water Wars

As the drought rolls on, Bay Area residents have been calling out their neighbors and local governments for water wastage by writing into the San Francisco Chronicle with tales of cars washed too often, overwatered lawns, and leaking fire hydrants. Other frequent complaints include streets and sidewalks being washed down and sprinklers that spray onto roads instead of grass around Golden Gate Park. One woman even reported her brother for overwatering his lawn in Woodside, saying that he was wasting water even though, as she commented, "He truly is intelligent. He reads the New Yorker every week." [SFGate]
