Vail Daily letter: Practice what you preach
July 22, 2015
At about 2 p.m. Thursday, I exited onto the new roundabout in Eagle. The irrigation system was watering one of the newly planted areas. As I proceeded on Route 6, there was a sign which gave information about "mandatory watering restrictions." In addition to listing the schedule for watering, it added, "No watering after 10 a.m. and before 5 p.m." Doesn't 2 p.m. fit into this window? I would also think that with modern technology, a water sensor could have been added to this new site, so that I would not drive through the roundabout and see the irrigation system on when it was raining. At other times, the sprinkler heads seem to be doing a good job cleaning the road surfaces. I think our local government should be practicing what it is preaching!
