At least the City finally started putting average daily water consumption in gallons on the monthly water bill, which helps people realize how much water they are using. On the other hand, when I asked the friendly City "water efficiency expert" who came to my house how to translate the readings on my water meter in gallons, he could not tell me. I was trying to get an idea of how many gallons of water my avocado tree gets if I leave the sprinkler on for an hour, so read before, read after, subtract before from after, and translate into gallons. I guess I need to divide by 749? Is that right?

A picture is worth a thousand words. Just look at the pictures of the water damage all over the NP building and tell me if you think that looks like a happy place to work. Those pictures spell neglect and contempt for the paper, its workers, and the community.

Make grey water and rain catching systems legal. Better yet, mandate them for all new construction!

The man is a repulsive brute and a criminal, but his crimes have nothing to do with his national origin nor immigration status, so keep your racism to yourself, please. It only adds to the depressing image of human nature described in the article.
