Make everyone use water meters

Re "Low storage brings water ration orders" (Page A1, Dec. 29): How ironic that it is only in the face of a drought that the cities of Folsom and Sacramento ask their residents to conserve water consumption by 20 percent. As a resident of Rocklin, I paid more than $1,000 last year for my water, and I am a single person with a very small yard. I conserve water because I have to pay for every drop that I use. Why isn't everyone on a water meter like I am? With metering, water conservation would become a necessary part of everyday life. No longer would some people be so casual in their overuse of water. I am tired of my neighbors in Granite Bay draining their pools in the summer when the temperature is uncomfortable and then refilling them with fresh, cool, free water.
