How does giving millions of gallons of water to these new developments make ANY sense while the rest of us are restricted to watering our gardens only once a week?
Museum House – 100 dwellings
Banning Ranch – 895 dwellings
San Joaquin Plaza – 524 dwellings
Echo – 36 dwellings
Meridian Residences – 79 dwellings
Lido Villas – 23 dwellings
Uptown Newport – 1244 dwellings
Back Bay Landing – 49 dwellings
150 Newport Center – 49 dwellings
Koll Center – 260 dwellings
Saunders Property – 325 dwellings
The Newport Residences – 384 dwellings
Ebb Tide – 81 dwellings
Total: 4049 new dwellings
It all adds up! Even at a modest per household use of 400 gallons a day, these 4049 new households will require 591 million gallons of water a year!
Of course, we should all be saving water, but should we be giving so much of it to these developments? Frankly, I’m beginning to feel a little like a sucker.
