Mitchell: Lot of wasted water in Sun City West

Posted

I’m sure a lot of people have noticed an excessive amount of water running off from various properties in Sun City West into the gutters.

It seems that nobody cares and don’t do anything about it. No wonder that Lake Mead is drying up.

Almost every day the center of Meeker Boulevard has a lot of water running down to the intersection of R.H. Johnson Boulevard, and down R.H. Johnson Boulevard to almost Camino Del Sol, and the intersection of Meeker Boulevard and Camino Del Sol is almost flooded with water from the lawn at the rehabilitation facility.

The Recreation Centers of Sun City West CC&R Department will not help and EPCOR is not worried about the excess runoff, providing the water is coming from after it is metered and not before it is metered.

I continue to read articles in this publication twice per month about conserving water in Sun City West, but I continue to see a lot of wasted water running off into the gutters. I wonder what will it take for some entity to step in to penalize property owners for the wasted water. Wet gutters serve no purpose during periods of times that water conservation should be embraced by everyone.
