California to ask residents to snitch on neighbors suspected of wasting water

04.08.15 12:14 PM

The California Water Resources Board is expected to unveil an online venue that allows residents anonymously to tell on people and businesses in their community whom they suspect of wasting water.

The measure represents one prong in a multifaceted state government response to a severe water shortage in population centers in coastal areas, the Inland Empire and Central Valley.

According to CBS Sacramento, the program is intended to bolster flagging efforts to persuade water customers to voluntarily reduce their consumption.

“California officials say residents arenít doing enough to conserve water, and now state officials want residents to report their neighbors and business owners who waste water,” CBS reports.

“The controversial system to ‘snitch’ was created after a report found statewide February was the worst conservation month since they started keeping track last July, with residents only cutting use by 2.8 percent.”

Perhaps the state can volunteer itself as an example for how to go about the nosy business of tattling.

Amid the threat of government fines for wasting water during the earlier days of the water crisis last fall, one intrepid resident with a video camera took to the Internet to share an example of how one receiving station for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power was, ahem, conserving its water.
