A better idea, stop allowing new apartments, homes and commercial buildings to be built.

In other words let us who have been forced to cut back over the years our water.

Perhaps if they started forbidding bathrooms and required all new construction to have old fashioned septic tanks.

And recycle the bath water to water plants with.

Won't happen. The county wants the new revenue gen'd from more properties and from more people spending. You and I know its futile, and so do they but they also know we're a captive audience so we're SOL. Submission accomplished!

All new residents should be required to bring a five-year supply of water with them.

Or we can start now on building the mother-of-all-solar-and-wind-a rrays-supplying-power-to-massi ve-pumping-stations- bringing-water-from the midwest. Think of the jobs, man, think of the jobs!

Another alternative would be they pay a higher rate and have stricter restrictions.

And the water district starts enforcing them.
