Artificial Grass Los Angeles, CA

Recently in Los Angeles, water shortages are becoming more and more important to the city. Los Angeles officials are doubling their water-wasting patrols. Currently, they have one assigned inspector to investigate the city's neighborhoods. With these alerts, many residents are thinking of switching to artificial grass to save the water. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (DWP) reported to the city's press that it now assigned four water-wasting inspectors, but officials noted that their primary goal will be more towards educational than enforcement. Within six month of this year, their department received 1,400 reports of violations and handed out 863 warnings letters. But so far, relatively few fines have been issued, even though the state rules allow penalizing water wasters $500. They believe that the warning will decrease the water usage and inform the residence of a potential penalty. However, the penalizing fee is reserved for people who simply refuse to help out the state. During three-year observation, the DWP got about 30,000 reports of water violations, from those about 9,000 warning were issued. But only about 300 were assessed fines when they were found to have wasted water again, and of those, none became multiple offenders the first fine. Los Angeles city currently is in Phase 2 of a mandatory water-conservation ordinance, which means watering the yard no more than three times a week and never on weekends.

The H2- Oh No that is taking place from Boston to Phoenix

It was yesterday that I discovered that there is something very bizarre occurring with the cost of water in the United States.

Changes that are happening so quickly with measured results that reaffirm our belief in a better, brighter, and more efficient tomorrow. Where companies like PG&E now purchase electricity directly from a homeowner who's solar panels store more power than he can use, or better yet, the always beautiful, always lush, synthetic lawns that made mowing and weeds a thing of the past and finally shed light on the unnecessary vanity and water wasting expense of a regular lawn. But of course the moment I begin to feel somewhat optimistic about the future I am slapped in the face with things like this... I read some things that, ever after 24 hours, I am still confused and alarmed considering the implications and how this has an impact on each and every citizen in the US.
