Default Water restrictions and gardens

ME Ive been saving water for years, but to come up with corporations to
regulate water is completely crazy.
They refuse to put in more infrastructure, and charge like wounded bulls
for a resource which will become limited.

actually atm they don't charge enough. people would take it more seriously
if it cost more.

Yet they say we couldnt have
come this far without the Thompson dam, then say more dams wont create
more water. Er run that past me again?

it's true that the presence of more dams does not create more rain :-)

With only 9% of all water being used by homes, we need a little more
response than putting the blame on people singing in showers. We should be
so happy. Lets face it, the only one with reason to sing in the showers
are the parliamentarians who leave their job with tax payer funded super

i think it's two things. householders are becoming more responsible, and
since they have to, that's good. businesses aren't necessarily becoming more
responsible, but they need to also. just because business doesn't do it's
part yet doesn't mean we shouldn't.
