Another thread got me to thinking. In some of your areas it's permissible to throw sprinklers across public front sidewalks. In my area we can't do this because of the waste of water gathering on concrete and the potential of interferring with people using the sidewalk. We also all know that it's nearly impossible to keep water from sidestrips (or any other nozzle) completely off sidewalks and out of gutters so there is still some waste involved. Maybe cities should just get rid of parking strips completely and concrete the whole thing in? How does your area handle this and is it defined by urban vs. rural, the availability of water in your area or some other factor?
