Watering the sidewalk?
I know that the subject line sounds like a joke but that actually happened this morning. Upon leaving Kezar Stadium after a track workout I observed a park employee washing a few leaves off a big sidewalk with a huge water hose. The whole area was soaked and she lazily wasted at least 50 gallons of water on a few leaves that she could have easily swept up with a broom (probably in less time). I watched in shock. I asked her why she was wasting water during an extreme drought and she shrugged her shoulders with a look of "Why would you confront me about this?".
We need our city leadership to step up and educate city workers that we need to start conserving water. Please forward the petition to your friends and comment about ways you see water being wasted in San Francisco.
