    $3,000 for a water bill. Well, kind of high, but good cuz we all should pay a high price for water. We need to conserve this precious commodity.

    @Cesar...true that. But there's more to water conservation than meets the eye. Water is trapped here in earth. It has nowhere to go. We still have the same water we have always had, it's just dirty now. All of it. The last drop of fresh water on earth was found about 20 yrs ago. Now it all must be treated before consumption. Water doesn't need to be "conserved", it needs to be left alone. (as in stop polluting it so much) Those "low-flow" household gadgets don't conserve water. They make water purification even more difficult. Sure, they save you a few bucks on your water bill, but at the expense of the community. Imagine how filthy water will be in the future, with or without conservation.

    Hi Cesar. Looks like you have a new shadow friend. How empty the mind that hijacks his neighbors personal screen name. And why CNN allows this to occur is beyond me. I guess CNN presents the news and figures that's where their responsibility ends. Now if I were chart monitor...he he, I'd probably be the only one allowed to post! Good to see you again Cesar.
