Letter: LADWP and new well construction
October 14, 2015, Submitted by Daniel Pritchett, Sierra Wave
As a board member of the Owens Valley Committee (OVC), I was interested to read the recent (10/10/15) OpEd (attributed to Jim Yannotta) defending DWP’s program for new well construction.

California drought: Hunt on for state's biggest residential water-waster
October 14,, 2015, Peter Hockaday, San Francisco Gate
Shame, shame! 
In the historic California drought, state residents are using every tool available to reduce water usage. High on the list: Reporting others who waste.

The mystery hog is a Bel Air resident consuming 11.8 million gallons per year (a whopping 32,000 gallons per day). In his most recent column, he writes "I now have a drought posse scouring satellite maps, following neighborhood gutter flows and reporting directly to me. I even know someone who has put a camera-equipped drone into service."
