City: Conserve now

Posted: Saturday, October 22, 2011 9:48 pm | Updated: 2:22 pm, Tue Jun 4, 2013.

When it comes right down to it, if people don't conserve water now and a deluge of steady rain doesn't hit Nacogdoches County soon, projections show that Lake Nacogdoches will be empty in less than a year.

          While I agree that some things need to be done about the water conservation and people not obeying the plan, I do not think it is fair to punish everyone by raising the prices of our water. Nacogdoches already has one of the highest rates for water in the state. My wife and I have not watered our yard in 2 weeks in our own effort to conserve energy and to try and offset our idiot neighbor who insists on watering every other night. These are the people that need to be punished. Fine the mess out of the violators, and don't wait until the end of the year.
