Talk about thorough. This press release from the Mayor's office on Wednesday about water reduction goes on and on, but in a good way. It is concluded with tips, two of which that stuck out to us:

2. Use a Broom, Not a Hose to Clean Your Driveways and Sidewalks. The last time we spoke to a Street Use Inspector, this was illegal anyway. You are not allowed to put trash and debris into the gutter of a city street. Bundle it up and throw it away (trash or green waste bin).
10. Fix Your Sprinklers so You're Not Watering Your Sidewalks and Driveways. People should be ticketed for this. If you want to create a city where people walk and bike commute, it would be nice not to get your clothes wet.
