Editor:

Is it really true the City has failed to enforce putting in individual water meters in apartments? If so, how completely hypocritical and ridiculous the City Council is proposing a hike in rates and mandatory cuts.

Also has anyone examined the impact of relying upon ground water? We certainly don’t get enough rain water to replenish what the City uses. Could we suffer from ground subsidence as parts of the Central Valley have? Are we going to kill our trees because their roots don’t reach a declining water table?

The current and proposed water policies are unsustainable and unsupportable. If we really want to save water, let’s stop all new apartment construction, require individual meters, and let City Council lobby State politicians to force farmers from wasting water. Also, have a ban on ground water usage to protect our environment.
