I find your “mandatory water restriction in place” article almost comical. I certainly can understand the need for personal conservation of water especially during this horrible time of drought.
What I don’t understand is why I continue to daily drive through thousands of wasted gallons of precious water on various roads through out Sugar Land and Missouri City? If you don’t believe me, just take a spin down Lexington between Dulles and Highway 6 on Friday afternoons and evenings or on Commonwealth between University and Commonwealth Elementary School on several week day mornings. I’m sure there are many other examples of the wasted water through out these cities and Ft Bend County. Most of this water is coming from over watering the esplanades.
Perhaps the authority responsible believes that watering the concrete roads somehow extends the life of the road bed. Better yet, there may be some payoffs between elected officials and all the car wash service companies in the area. It seems like every time I get my car washed I wind up getting my car dirty again by going through a road pond. I challenge our beloved politician scandal chaser to uncover the truth and convey it to the readers of this grand newspaper. I would like to know the number of gallons wasted daily and estimated cost of that water.
