Letter: Overbuilding exacerbating drought
July 21, 2014, 05:00 AM

Editor,

Poor misguided Jerry Brown with his $500 fine for overwatering in California. How about overbuilding Jerry, each one of those units needs water and your cities just keep building them. Just take a day off and drive through San Mateo and Redwood City and you will discover that they have added thousands of units to their cities during your drought. Where is the water coming from to supply all these new units?

I got a great idea, cut back everyone that is there now 10 percent then we can squeeze all these new units in. Wake up Jerry, your cities are compounding this drought by adding more user to the California water trough. Tell your cities that there is only so much water in California and, until we find more, the people here now are the ones that get to drink it.

Don’t threaten your citizens with your eyes closed. When cities stop over building and adding to the water demand I’ll stop washing my car.
