The Metropolitan Water District board Tuesday approved a much-disputed drought plan despite protests from officials in some southeastern Los Angeles County cities who complained that low-income residents would be penalized with higher rates. Using a weighted voting system that is keyed to property valuation and not population, the 37-member board voted 176,523 to 14,265 to support the plan.

The July 16 piece on xeriscape, "Beauty, Ease, Economy of Flower-Filled Dry Garden" by Robert Smaus, was an excellent description of what is possible in Southern California when one considers the oxymoron less is more.
