The Santa Clarita Valley Water Agency needs some new thinking. Its new residential watering restrictions just create a bureaucracy difficult to enforce. Just water at these times and just water on these days and don’t water the concrete and only use a hose with a shutoff nozzle, and blahblahblah.
A much better residential approach is to allot monthly water per resident and per acre. Period. Overuse results in warning and shutoff until a new month. Then they can go borrow some from a neighbor… if the neighbor is willing.
