Water retention

Dear Editor:It saddens me to see homes in my neighborhood excessively watering their lawns at a time when the state has declared a water emergency and the city of Los Angeles has passed mandatory restrictions. It is probably safe to say that thousands of gallons of water are wasted each week in my immediate neighborhood alone - much of it landing on sidewalks and running down gutters. At best, this extravagant watering can only be thoughtlessness; at worst, it is self absorbed disregard for the welfare of the planet and humanity. Perhaps the Patriot can run some sort of feature item to try to get these people to be more considerate and practical. - Gary E. Myers, Downey
