The article “Montecito Entitled to More Water” was really good investigative reporting by Melinda Burns.
Last time we had a drought, we were asked to cut back on our water — and we did so with low-flow toilets and shower heads. Once again we are asked to cut back even further (from our already cut-back allowance) so we are losing our lawns.
Why are the City of Goleta and the county allowing more and more building? Why is Goleta Water District allowing our water to be trucked to Montecito — then they can be praised for saving water? Is this what we have been conserving for? Dirty politics!
