Time to get water-wise

California is running out of water.  Everyone in the state, from the Governor on down is begging us to use less water.  So why is the city of Claremont watering the grass in the median strip along Foothill Boulevard every day?

When one of the city council members was asked about this the reply was that people in the city wanted things to look nice. We have beautiful trees in the median strip. They would look nice with plain dirt or rock. It's time for the city to take water conservation seriously.
