Follow This- My Best Friend works for the Capital Police in Las Vegas. He gets to sit in on the Hearings with these MFING MORONS.
Riddle Me This Batman….
Last year at a hearing on this very subject, a Hydrologist’s presentation showed all these esteemed legislators, that AZ HAD FNING DUMPED SEVERAL HUNDRED THOUSAND OR FNING MILLIONS OF GALLONS OF OUR LIFE BLOOD INTO MFING EMPTY FIELDS, FLOODING THEM, So they wouldn’t loose their
WATER ALLOCATIONS!!!
Just like any GOVERMENT BUDGET-USE IT OR LOOSE IT!!
I’ve seen it in the Military, the Police and Fire Department, the School District. Use ALL OF YOUR BUDGET or we will punish you next year for being fiscally responsible!
Why would your Government water allocations be any different??
Someone should have gone to FNING JAIL over this, or AZ should loose the amount they waisted!!
You never heard a MFing peep about it anywhere and I’m sure the documents have been shredded!
Yet they will give me a citation for watering on Sunday???
No Morals, No Conscience, No Consequences, the Moto of almost every government agency :(

You know whats weird. Here in AZ, we have never been told we can't water on certain days or have had any water limit caps/usage. One of the driest and hottest states in the US and we don't have water regulations like other states. Go figure.

SNWA will pay you to convert “Non Essential Grass” ( In Vegas, Northern CA Sensameya is Considered Essential, doctors orders ;) )
Yet they build more casinos with water features and more Golf Courses. Basically the Casinos and their interests override everything..

About 10 years ago I was visiting a buddy who lives outside Mesa, AZ. I was blown away that early in the morning street gutters would be filled with running water because people had their sprinklers set to FLOOD to grow their green grass and the water was just pouring down the street! Not to mention giant fountains every 1/4 mile. Great place, but I had never been somewhere that wasted so much water.

Yep, I worked up in Vegas for years and we replaced a ton of turf with DG rock and landscape on several golf courses as they were getting kick backs for doing so.

Think about this. Every single day, 200 people move to Phoenix from somewhere else in the country. 365 days a year. Development continues unabated. In southern AZ, there are massive industrial farms, mostly growing water hungry crops like alfalfa, owned by foreign corporations, mostly for export, bleeding the aquifers dry. Infuriating. Fully expect that Lake Powell will be gone in 5 years, maybe less, the water diverted to Lake Mead.
