Stumbled upon an article outlining the impacts of the drought on California’s wealthiest. It is interesting to see the impacts of the drought throughout Santa Barbara. I work for the local Housing Authority and we have stopped watering lawns at all of our properties. As government we are supposed to be the example, and you’re definitely starting to see browning lawns at government owned buildings. Also, all new buildings in the city seem to only use drought tolerant landscaping. Time to seriously implement change in the way we landscape. As the article mentions, a lot of California is desert, we don’t have the extra water. It is interesting to see how some of the wealthiest and biggest water users in the area are dealing with the issue.
