Re "The 80 percent should stop wasting water" (Letters, July 16): I have commented before about witnessing water waste along the Los Angeles coast but to no avail. This article confirms my witness. South Coast water usage has increased 8 percent over the last year.

Did I fail to mention the amount of 100-degree days we experience compared to our southern neighbors?
