There are a lot of idiots in this world, but it seems like the Letters to the Editor section is full of them lately.
They complain about a 20-25% reduction in residential water use. They claim farmers are not paying a price, the poor city person is paying the price.
What don’t these city folk understand about zero or 5% of the farmers’ normal water allotment? Let’s see how the city folk would do if they got 5% of their normal water, and then the tap went dry.
Do you think the delta smelt would become a little less important or endangered? The farmers have millions invested in crops. The city folk would like them just to plow them under to save water.
Never miss a local story.
How about city folk just tear down your houses? It would save water. A bunch of idiots!
