Controversy surrounding RIOC's shutting off water to the Southpoint cat sanctuary reminded me of a video I made last week. At the time, it just occurred to me as sloppy workmanship. It's been like this for years. Funny, but not a big deal, I thought, until I read that RIOC cut off the cat sanctuary because, it's claimed, they were wasting too much water.

Hm...

 The flooding occurs daily at around 7:00 a.m. Runners, mothers pushing strollers, others walking to work pause, wait and dodge sprinklers spewing water all the way out to the seawall.

The water remains standing at 3:00 p.m. today, a rain free day with plenty of sunshine earlier.

Does RIOC really care about wasting water, or is something else going on?
