People who have lived all their lives in areas where there is indoor plumbing, where there is an abundance of water readily available whenever you want, wherever you are, where the simple act of turning on a faucet means that water will emerge, don’t know how to function appropriately with even the idea of using less water it seems.
It dawned on me that instead of our state and local governments wanting to fine residents for watering the grass or using water above the allotted amount, they should visit some rural area in Jamaica, to learn from the natives how they survive using the little water they have in their homes on a daily basis. They could also just gather a group of immigrants from the Caribbean, from South and Central America and let them be the focus group for ideas about water conservation. Just a thought, what are yours?
