Actual imported annual water usage: 0.00
http://www.sandiegoreader.com/photos/... = Estimated imported annual water usage: 200 inches (5,213,260 gallons per acre or a column of water 16 feet high over every square-foot on the landscaping, but the estimated evaporative water loss from the "lake" is "only" about 3-6 feet)
PLEASE DISPROVE MY CALCULATIONS! Please provide EVIDENCE.
PS: This is one of the reasons we have to ration water. Institutions also get the water cheaper.
"Treated" sewage is often touted as "cheaper" yet, but those figures don't include the additional, separate costs of building, maintaining, staffing, and administering, and replacing the separate delivery infrastructure, nor does it include any health care costs from aerosol-borne viruses or bacteria, the effects of salts and other factors on the debit side of the "equation."
