    Everything I have to save is way past watering anyway. The deep cracks in my yard can testify to that. Along with the dustbowl that used to be a lawn and our shrubs that are just dying a little more every day. I keep praying for rain….good soaking rain.

    That’s funny. I do not remember getting a discount on water when it rains for days and floods. I need to look back at those bills.

    “During the 2007 drought, we heard comments that some people thought water companies institute surcharges to make more money,” Strength said. “That was certainly not our experience in 2007 and I don’t expect it to be this time. ”

    Mike Strength, I have a question. What have you done to improve the water system since 2007? In nine years nothing has been done to have more water for times like this. I can understand the Birmingham Water Works doing nothing, but I would have thought Trussville would have more common sense and they would have done something. I guess not. 🙁

    The Trussville Tribune since the last drought Trussville has had close to 500 houses added to the community too. Might need to add another.

    The neighborhood across from Deerfoot Animal Cinic might need to turn the sprinkler off the neighborhood entrance.

    I (and some others I know) are collecting water in a large bowl in the kitchen sink when I wash my hands or rinse a dish or refill my dog’s bowl. Then, I throw that water outside when the bowl is full. I know it’s a drop in the bucket, but every little bit helps! And, I called Trussville Utilities about a water leak in the road in Grayson Valley on Sunday morning. They were there within the hour and had heavy equipment out digging to fix it very quickly! They are doing their part too!

    Does that apply to industrial areas of town where the company has to use huge amounts of water to keep dust from blowing accross the city? Such places as rock quarries and material storage yards?

    Ryan Fitzwater Nothing there. The W & G man came out yesterday to paint gas meters,but did not mention drought restriction, but did mention Trussville gets its water from wells.

    Oh there are materials plants all around Alabama flooding their job sites to keep the dust down. Are they paying the surcharge? Sure doesn’t seem like it the way they are using it.

    So the little guys pay the surcharge and the big guys get a free pass. I see.
