Boo hoo hoo...if residents are NOT allowed to water outdoors then commercial companies should be made to follow the same rules. Why should I let my lawn and flowers die just so they can keep making money. They should have to suffer loses just like homeowners are having to. When they stop commercial companies from using water, then I will stop using water.

I was at a store at the corner of 120/Riverside, in Lawrenceville, 10/16. There were 7 people watering outdoor plants/trees, just standing there watering with hand held hoses. Where on earth does this make sense. People need water before plants do. "HELLO" ????

I live in Jackson County and I want to be able to have water from now until the drought is over. What are they using Thousands of gallons of water for ??? So they pave roads somewhere else for a while. I would rather drink the water than have ignorant people washing thier cars with it.

If the residents have to cut way back, then the commercial industry should have to as well. For the time being apply for another job. There are plenty of them to be found out here. Step up to the plate and do what ever it may take and stop complaining!

How is the water leaving Water Reclaimation Facilities being used? Reuse the water you have where you can, EPD encourages it!

Last week on the Frank Ski morning show, Shirley Franklin warned us of a water shortage. But, if we are conservative in our usage, we would not be seriously affected by this shortage until the next twenty years. Now, I'm hearing that some counties may have to discontinue their usage on Wednesday. What changed so quickly?

Everyone needs to go easy on the water. Lets stop sending water to Fla. for fish. How do they ration water anyway. Pray for more rain.

I think that the commercial should use water, becase then they can produce stuff for us!
