More broken water pipes:

Two more water mains burst overnight, bringing more questions (LA Times).

    Re: Steve Lopez’s article, it’s about a couple who are complaining about their high DWP water bill, who turn out to be using 750 gallons of water a day. That’s twice the Tier 1 limit, which is already absurdly generous.The DWP clearly deserves criticism for the offhand way it deals with the public and the way it wastes water itself, but I don’t see that people who are using 750 gallons a day have a leg to stand on. It would be more useful to write about the need to reduce the Tier 1 limit.

      I admit I choked when I heard how much their pre-complaint water bill was, and wondered how the hell any single family user could spend so much just on water. I mean, that is some folk’s rent payment! So point taken, well said.
