WASTEFUL WAYS IN WILDOMAR

First time I posted picture was on July 15, 2014 the day the California State Water Resources Control Board approved an emergency regulation to ensure increased conservation efforts and reduce outdoor urban water use. These regulation allow the imposition of fines up to $500.00 per day for violations.
Since then almost weekly I have taken pictures of the City of Wildomar wasting water at Marna O’Brien Park. To their credit the waste is being reduced a little but far too much is going where it shouldn’t, the fines are set to take effect on August 1st. Sidewalks and parking lots do not grow.

Its more than just a little bit of water.
