Ok, I will look out for these kind of wastes and report back to this thread when I alter one like you did...

On the radio stations they were asking people to water every other day and only after the sun went down. However all businesses were allowed to keep their automatic sprinkler systems on as they had in the past. Bad placement and a windy area meant that (as usual) most of that water for grass was going onto the street. Gated communities and apartment buildings also kept on their regular schedule with water running down the streets (there are no drains here).
Idiotic practices like this have reduced a once flourishing lake, which provides all this water, to about 40% of its size. When you call the city, they do nothing. However, they have meetings all the time to figure out where they are going to get their water from in the future and what went wrong. We should make vaccines for stupid; it's the most contagio us thing I can think of.
