Water and the southwest in Speakers Corner June 18, 2015 billvon> Still....to your point, residential being picked on unfairly. That's the thing. They're not even putting restrictions on anyone yet - just upgrading meters so if they have to they can better monitor water usage. But even that gets fought. As in most such issues, the question everyone is asking themselves is "how do I get other people to use less water?" Voluntary altruism is laudable, but frequently inadequate to effect the collective good. Government cannot compel voluntary altruism. But it can coerce collective cooperation. Viva la revolucion.
