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! —Connor Jones, permaculture expert, certified permaculture designer
We all need to learn how to slow and sink rainwater on our 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. New landscaping should be limited to drought tolerant plants, and lawns eliminated from plans. Like some other cities, we might consider a moratorium on issuing water service connections.
