Save water in court

CambriaApril 10, 2014 

The March 12 issue of the Tribune included a declaration of the SLO County drought emergency. I had just served on jury duty the previous week in SLO. The water that could be saved in the court building and, most likely, all the other older buildings could make a substantial difference.

Break times throughout the courthouse, over the days and weeks of trials, makes for lots of water going down the sinks and toilets. Some people either forgot to turn off faucets or just expected them to be on a sensor and not keep running. Toilets could be replaced with low flow, etc.

I was especially conscious of the waste of water, as we in Cambria are limited to a certain amount for each person in a household.

It takes all of us to conserve water during this extended drought, and the county seat should be the first to do whatever it takes to save water.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
