I have no basis to opine on riparian science. But there is another angle of this that really irks me.
My town is under a watering ban. Driving through the neighborhood last night, there were quite a few scofflaws who were running their sprinklers.
I'm just curious to know why these people think the rules don't apply to them. I'd also like to know what other rules they feel free to ignore.
The consequences can get pretty pricy, too. First offense gets a warning. The penalties are then $250, $500 and $2500 for each successive offense within a year of a prior offense.
I don't want to become the neighborhood snitch, but then again, who the heck do these people think they are?
