I want to thank the brilliant person that suggested selling effluent for a very reasonable price to anyone wishing to save their yard and landscaping. This is one of the best ideas the city has ever had. Having watched previous droughts and the resulting expense of replanting and landscaping, this is a wonderfully practical thing the city has done. It will also be helpful with tourism.
Last weekend we visited with a couple who was considering Las Vegas as a retirement place. They asked about the brown yards, were we coming out of or continuing in drought. We had to tell them that the city has no water and has severe restrictions in place. When tourists come they want to see green yards and trees and not have to eat out of plastic with plastic. We could go into the graffiti, junk vehicles, etc. but J.P (Gamertsfelder) has already covered that. At least maybe we can solve the brown yard problem and make the city more inviting.
