Water wasted on irrigating alfalfa for cows (yes, that's you, meat eater) and horses (just a hobby).
The poor dog whose owner was "defending" it now possibly has no one to take care of it. Real bright, there, pal.
Also, on the Zendo coffee shop, the dude says he "used" to own the coffee shop at Mountain and Eighth. Does that mean that place is closed--or has new owners? I always heard that place had issues...
Oh, and what do YOU waste water on PJH? We all probably use far more water than we really need...
Water wasted on growing alfalfa in New Mexico period, regardless of your dietary choices.
Oh, and OBTS, I believe the place at Mountain and Eighth is now a tile shop that also serves coffee and desserts. They're still open as far as I know, but not the owners who were around when the space first became a coffee shop.
Alfalfa produces the most nutritional feed out there for a variety of creatures (dairy cows for example - it's not all meat), and, being a member of the pea family, fixes nitrogen into the soil. Alfalfa can be harvested numerous times throughout its growing season, so the yield per acre is pretty substantial - pecan trees take as much water and only produce once. Also, bees produce honey from the fields, so we get some side benefits. (ie, quit picking on alfalfa!)
I have more of a problem with the vast green lawns in the North Valley using precious river water during droughts, while paying a pittance for property taxes for boarding horses. Maybe we should require North Valley residents to use sheep/cattle to keep their lawns mowed, so they qualify for cheaper water and taxes. Otherwise, they can pay market rates for water...
