I hear they're doing that in BC too, but for $4/1000L or something like that.

Don't forget the next time you're eating Italian food at a local restaurant to order up imitation salad too.

Nestle buys water and resells it.

It's storming here for the 4th day in a row. Been a wet spring all around. Mud everywhere. I'd like to get into my garden and do some other outdoor projects but I'd like not be doing them in mud boots. Then again I live in the Humid Midwest and get to enjoy swamp ass all summer. All those people that live in what originally was desert have no sympathy from me when its dry. If you live at the bottom of a hill and live off the runoff of the top of hill you also shouldn't complain when the people who live at the top take their share first.

Some wealthy California neighborhoods not conserving water amid drought - CBS News

Quote:
What drought? Beverly Hills still hosing down driveways

California homeowners are under strict new orders to reduce water use due to the drought. Many are taking drastic measures like removing their grass, but the mandate seems to have gone unnoticed in some famously rich communities.

Living the California dream takes a lot of money. It also takes a lot of water. An UCLA study found wealthy neighborhoods use three times more water than other Southern California cities.

"We found that overall about 50 percent, if not more, of water, is used on outdoor irrigation," said Dr. Stephanie Pincetl, who conducted the study. "Bigger house, bigger lawn, more water use -- more water, and they can afford it."

Right now, Beverly Hills does not ticket water wasters. Residents have only been asked to turn off decorative fountains and stop hosing down driveways "voluntarily," measures that don't get them close to the new state-wide mandate of a 25-percent reduction.

But Beverly Hills may soon look very different. The city is planning to cut private consumption through strict enforcement.

Rick Silva, who patrols wealthy neighborhoods for the Department of Water and Power, said he generally finds homeowners unmoved by the drought problem.

"In the future, when we start reducing the days, that leaves more days when no one is allowed to irrigate and enforcement gets a lot easier," Silva said. "And we get the message out more because there are going to be more violations written up."

In Orange County, the well-heeled are making their own concessions to the new normal. For example, some are using scuba divers to fix cracks and leaks in their pools, so they don't have to drain the water first.

Doug Beard, who owns Royal Pool Service, said there is often "20,000-30,000 thousand gallons of water that's just getting wasted to do a repair."

But the water shortage is an issue money alone can't solve.

Yeah, the Nestle plant is a stones throw from where I live. Please keep protesting them.

Nevermind they get the water from the American River not groundwater.

Keep them from looking at the bottling plant where I work. We don't conserve at all.

Not only that but a large percentage of the almonds get shipped overseas. Meaning we are exporting our water to China.

Disingenuous article is disingenuous. Stealing implies that they aren't paying for it. They are.

The rates they are paying are the ones that they were told to pay, no less, no more.

And because it's from the river, the worst impact would be the delta, not groundwater.

Also, the ability to reap profits is incumbent on the consumer to purchase it. This is all called capitalism.

How's it any worse than water and irrigation districts that pay nothing for the water and sell it.

They're supposed to reduce watering on them too. I rarely get close enough to see if they are or not.

Easy solution. Start watering the lawns and fields with brawndo. It's got what plants crave.

I would bet it is a political end around the EPA to build a dam or two. Call it flood protection and not building a lake and it sounds mo bettah.

Don't get me started.

Umm they adapted and turned it into a breeding ground after it was built, they will adapt again when it I gone. If not fuck'em. Stupid should hurt or lead to non existence

Currently they don't. They're talking about metering wells. Which is fairly ironic since a 5 gpm well is considered a good well here. My neighbours have 1 gpm wells.

This whole thing is retarded, up here in Humboldt county, at least on my back fence, since Thanksgiving, i've recorded 45" of rainfall, record for my town. Yet the governor uses a one size fits all solution, I laughed about excessive runoff from lawn irrigation can result in a $500 fine, when Monday it was raining so fucking hard my yard was flooded and pouring onto the street. It rained 3.25" overnight on Sunday/Monday.
