When in Drought

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.
