Your editorial "Just a Flick of the Wrist," concerning water conservation, was right on target. This has obviously been a very dry year statewide. However, with holdover reservoir and groundwater storage, our supplies will be good through this year. Next year, however, is a question mark. In years like this, water conservation programs become increasingly important, and the fact that roughly 40% to 50% of our residential water use is dedicated outdoors illustrates the need for a comprehensive program of conservation in landscape.
