By Carter Redish, San Clemente
In my early morning exercise around our neighborhood, I have come to the conclusion that either San Clemente isn’t a part of California, or our residents haven’t been watching the news. So many yards have their sprinklers overwatering, misdirected or leaking hundreds of gallons of water, which pour down the gutters, that I’m in shock.
We are in a water crisis, but apparently that hasn’t made an impression on people here yet. Sprinkler systems do a great job of controlling the watering of your yard, but the system needs checking all the time. Sprinkler heads get knocked off their direction. They wear out and timers need adjustment. Perhaps if water was rationed, and we only had enough to flush our toilets once a day, we might wake up?
