LOL Los Angeles Water Cops?!?

For more on this story, see LA Observed. Also, it wasn't at City Hall itself where they were breaking their own rules, but that building is the symbol of city government in Los Angeles, so it'll do, plus it makes the quote inscribed on the side of City Hall, "THE HIGHEST OF ALL SCIENCES AND SERVICES - GOVERNMENT" just that much more ironic, don't you think?

Unaltered photo, part of this photo set.

Previous post pointing to that quote here (along with link to who said it, picture at link makes inscription much easier to read)

Here's the Drought Busters Program highlights . . .
According to Los Angeles’ Prohibited Water Use Ordinance, customers cannot:
• Use water on hard surfaces such as sidewalks, walkways, driveways or parking areas (with the exception of water brooms)
• Water lawns between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. during April through September, and between 11a.m. and 3 p.m. during October through March.
• Allow excess water from sprinklers to flood gutters.
• Use water to clean, fill or maintain decorative fountains unless the water is part of a recirculation system.
• Serve water to customers in eating establishments, unless requested.
• Allow leaks to go unattended.
