Enforcing Water Restrictions

This story is another sad saga for the City of San Diego. They could well qualify for one of the SDTaxpayers awards for government gone wrong. The truth of this effort won't come out for months, but at the rate this story suggests no one will be fined for wasting water. Nor will the city residents and businesses achieve the conservation goals hoped.

The water cops should be able to use these pictures of waste to send owners information regarding conservation goals, how to achieve them, and why they need to take action. That way complaints would not linger for weeks, awaiting investigation and driving around town all morning long, and finding little to act upon.
