Does anyone else see the irony of receiving city of Bend water conservation mailings when if you take a short walk anywhere in Bend you'll find gallons of water soaking the pavement? The other night I was walking down Awbrey Dr. when a sprinkler must have malfunctioned because there was a small river flowing alongside me. Why do we need green grass? Why does the city pay for sprinkler systems in absurd patches of sidewalk and allow for such water waste? I bet there isn't a single Bend resident who hasn't encountered puddles on the road/sidewalk, or misguided spray from these ridiculous sprinkler systems. Pay attention and you'll soon realize the amount of water wasted!
