Last year Pat LaPointe recommended an increase in the water rates because residents were not using enough water. Talk about double-speak!

It is getting bad. Rooftops of the 3-deckers in Lawrence are starting to appear above the water.
This means Mazz can only use his 10-acre water fountain 3 times a day.

GREAT attitude jocko! What does a potential water shortage have to do with English as a second language class? Apparently you are not intelligent enough to see that the two are not directly connected. If she ends ESL classes it does NOT put more water in the reservoirs! The mature thing to do is to help with the water problem, and address your issue with ESL separately.

Do people actually believe WE MAY RUN OUT OF WATER?
hahahaha what a bunch of f-ing retards.

Ok, so let me get this correct I pay for the water/sewer, but they tell me when I can use it?

I'll stop running my water as soon as the town goes to all the bars and restaurants in town and tells them to wash dishes and use water on certain days. They are using A TON more than the average person.

Let's see I can't water my plants, wash my car cause olive garden has to make spaghetti.

Right on Riley! I watered my lawn twice today because it's not green enough for me. I'll water it again tonight too. That's what "going green" is all about.

Does anybody actually read the articles or just the headlines? Not a water shortage but a peak demand problem. Maybe the water dept. should have water black outs like the power companies have. So this proves no conservation by Leominster residents. Especially Riley Idiot!!
