I have a lot of concerns regarding water conservation and best use of our resources.
Lots of things to talk about.
Dwindling Sierra Nevada snowpack due to climate change.
Environmentalist do-gooders wanting to remove Hetch Hetchy from the water system and restore that valley to wilderness.
How much water is being recycled/ reclaimed? Locally a lot goes into purple pipes and waters landscaping in industrial parks and gold courses (as I recall).
My grandfather retired his lawns in 1976, when drought first became part of our vocabulary here, and got into cactus and succulents and a few natives.
I haven't installed a sod lawn since 1996, after reading Cadillac Desert
by Mark Reisner.
More later. Off to a job now.
