"An average family of three living in the Tri-Valley uses about 350-450 gallons of water per day, including for irrigating landscaping. However, water usage can double in the summer months due to higher temperatures."
Is that average gallons per day an annual average? It wouldn't make sense for that number to double in the summer then.
For people who already conserve water throughout the year, a 10% reduction in usage is more difficult to achieve than for those who waste away.

Stacey -- I agree those who conserve all ready should get credit for doing the RIGHT thing 365 days a year when there is no drought worry.
Those who are water hogs should pay a bigger price when conservation is critical.

You must know that the "water hogs" are all gonna start complaining and say that you're so full of "hate" for pointing the finger.
Can the City Council force the WATER HOGS to pay more?
Maybe it would be a good idea to roam about Pleasanton and film the HOGS
while they waste and post on utube?
