Development During Drought
“We can no longer afford to lose rainfall by watching it run away to sewers carrying our soil and pollutants with it. The time is now for all of us to be stewards of the very thing that gives us our life, water!”
Our City Staff, our mayor and council members, our whole community should learn how to slow and sink rainwater on land to rehydrate our aquifers.

The city needs to demand that all new construction be designed to conserve water using aggressive efficiency practices such as low-flow toilets, gray-water systems and ways capturing rainfall. Like some other cities, we might consider a moratorium on issuing water service connections. New landscaping should be limited to drought tolerant plants, and lawns eliminated from plans.
