In the rural community where I live our water comes from wells. This week, right in the middle of a Texas heat wave, one of the wells had to be shut down for repairs. My neighbors and I received a stern notice that lawn sprinklers had to be shut off immediately. No watering until the well was back in service. Most people will agree cutting back seems reasonable. But those who take pride in the well-kept lawns they invested a lot of money and time in will get nervous if the repair work takes too long. Knowing this, along with the notice came a warning of a stiff fine for those who don’t comply. As with all warnings, fines are necessary because often we humans are hard of hearing and don’t feel rules apply to us.
