Re "$500 fine for water wasters" (Capitol & California, July 8): I agree that water wasters should be fined if they are doing it all the time but not if only occasionally. My lawn slopes down to the street. Water runs down hill. I water the two days allowed by the city. My lawns are not golden, they're dead. They went south with all our water.

We have a few people in this neighborhood who don't think water restrictions apply to them.
