Letter: Saving water

Why don’t homeowners and HOAs in the Treasure Valley shut down their automatic sprinklers when the ground is already soaked, or even worse, when it’s actually raining? Many farmers in Southwest Idaho are receiving less water this summer, which affects the crops they’ve decided to grow this season. It’s hard not to notice that there is hardly any corn growing in the Treasure Valley compared to last year. I realize that my development and most of the surrounding developments have pressurized irrigation, so all-you-can-use water is included in the annual HOA bill. But let’s at least save a little for the non-rainy days ahead.
