“If it’s yellow, let it mellow …

My family were taking Navy showers and using the
runoff to flush our toilets. Water rates were raised, ironically, to compensate
for the dramatically reduced amount of water that was being used by
customers.

…We learned that
government in our region has maintained the unenviable ability to talk, discuss
and filibuster their way out of making a decision, any decision other than to
delay making said decision.

… if it’s brown, flush it down.” These words
were posted in bathrooms throughout our region in 2002. Restaurants were using
disposable utensils, plates and cups. My family were taking Navy showers and using the runoff to flush our
toilets. Water rates were raised, ironically, to compensate for the dramatically
reduced amount of water that was being used by customers.

What did we learn? We learned that
government in our region has maintained the unenviable ability to talk, discuss
and filibuster their way out of making a decision, any decision other than to
delay making said decision. Water remains a topic of conversation, as evidenced
by today’s excellent DP article.
