There are countless ways we can do our part in water conservation all across the U.S. In NM, just simply search the web. Here in OKC, mandatory water restrictions are in place, even though our lakes are full in the eastern 2/3rds of the state, Apathy and whining about it as comment # 13,689 above does little.

If you'd kindly reroute the portion of the Rio Grande that you claimed in another thred runs thru OKC, back to NM's real stretch of the RG we'd be pleased<G>. Can you work that kind of magic while huffing chemtrails, huh, well can ya?

I never implied, typed, or sent by an electronic device that the Rio Grande flows through Oklahoma. Could you be confusing me with someone else? As for illegal drugs, never touch the stuff. Would never want to get out of touch or float @ above the Earth like so many like to do.

dimwit, he wasn't asking for more ways to conserve water, he was pointing out from the consumer aspect, the financial the consequences conserving water. We conserve water because we're asked too, and then they turn around and screw us because their revenues are down. It's not right and it's not fair. If we're going to conserve water for whatever reason then government needs to learn to get by with less revenue.

speaking of dimwits, water is totally undervalued and practically free. Our water laws and conservation measures have not caught up with reality. You are not being screwed for conserving, but with 80% of the supply not subject to any real conservation measures those who need to rely on municipal systems do pay more. The big bad government isn't making money off it, but it costs money to maintain a supply and the distribution network.

Let the parks die and the medians. Desert. Look at all the grass at the UNM campus. Let it naturalize.

You have no clue what you are saying. What does undervalued water have to do with anything? If it was so undervalued the water authority would have raised the rates long ago and not waited for conservation measures to amplify it. This is a simple case of not selling enough to pay the bills because people are conserving so they screw us by raising the rates because their revenue decreased due to conservation.

funny. You think you are the victim because the rates have been raised. If the rates were raised long ago you would have been squawking then, too. The big bad government doesn't like to deal with reality, either. Water is undervalued and most of the available water in the state is not subject to conservation like municipalities.

a liberal, right? Your ignorance of the issue backs that up and your cavalier response and attitude even more so. People should not be penalized for conserving and following the request of the controlling agency.

He believes in his mind, although his neurons don't connect, that he has ALL the answers in conserving water.:)))))).: The government is not taking your money to pocket their wallet. Those revenues go in providing you clean, potable water. In the future, look forward to toilet to tap to drink from. It is coming sooner faster than you realize.
