In the water usage story, it'd be nice to know if the increase was a result of residential or business usage.

Nice subtle Cinco de Mayo reference.

"The usage targets for 2008 are based on a consumption goal of 165 gallons per person per day over the course of the year. This is designed to keep the metropolitan area on track to meet a goal of 150 gallons per person per day by 2014."

What's the usage per day for large businesses? What's the usage per day for flood irrigation in the river valley? For the golf courses? For the Intels? For the coming Suncal sprawl on the west mesa? I'm sure low flow toilets and limiting lawn watering are sure going to nip this problem in the bud. To have a metric system of water usage based on gallons of person per day is a sure way to muck up the numbers as to not isolate where the water waste problems truly lie.

I thought Albuquerue was high altitude grassland and the Chihuahuan desert ended someplace near Belen. No matter, we still use way too much water and our projected usage is far too high. What is the long term plan for reclaimed water to be used in parks?

yawn... here's something that'll probably float your boat
