It is truly time that the population takes out natural resources very, very seriously. We have been being told of impending water shortage for some time but we seem to feel that green lawns are more important.

I just hope that the people of Florida and Georgia are willing to really work together to stretch out and take care of using ONLY what we NEED! That is the only way and will take the effort of us all.

heres a thought, there is a fire hydrant one block north of lane ave on normandy blvd that has been running water into the gutter for over a month, i have seen others around jax doing the same thing. i know these things have to be tested from time to time but i can only imagine how much water has been wasted in this process.

If there were alot less golf courses, plus new development being built all across FL, GA & AL we'd have more water. They also need to fine those who & actually make them pay when they waste it. Plant more drought resistant landscaping.

Not to mention the businesses who water the street every morning with their automatic sprinklers.

Lets not forget big business' that are pumping billions of gallons every day for their purposes. The "waste" water they're pumping back out is often so polluted it further reduces our available fresh water. If everyday citizens have to curtail water use why don't business have to do so as well? I'm no expert in math, but it doesn't seem like a couple of hundred gallons a citizen per day from watering a garden and washing a car occasionally and basic home use from a few hundred thousand citizens is a drop in the bucket compared to the billions 1 paper mill or plant pumps a day for cooling and other processes. So why are citizens who can't control a private business' taking the brunt of the punishment for the broader waste of resources by industry?
