Having read your article on water conservation ("When the Rain Drops," Opinion, May 8), I went to my yard, turned on the sprinklers, hosed down the driveway and washed the car. Then I came in, flushed the toilet with gallons of water and took an extra long shower.
How could anyone who loves Southern California do otherwise?
It took a drought plus sewer overload to get our politicians to institute the present building permit restrictions (Part I, May 4). To conserve water now only speeds the day when City Hall will declare the crisis to be over and will give a green light for another round of high-rise construction--new development which will worsen our water problems during the next cycle of low rainfall and worsen our smog and traffic problems for all time to come.
