A tale of two houses (September 16, 2015)
The TOAV has been trying to garner support for the hostile takeover of AVRWC by appealing to the worst of the water wasters — the ten percent who account for 80 percent of the drought surcharges. Let’s compare one of these water wasters with someone who wants TOAV to keep its hands off Ranchos.
|Water waster||Water conscious|
|Total value for property||$217,653||$219,000|
|Land area (sq. ft.)||27,878||23,958|
|Water usage (units)||150||4|
|Water usage (gallons)||112,200||2,992|
Yes, you are reading that right. One of the leading proponents of the TOAV’s hostile takeover of AVRWC uses 37.5 times more water than a comparable home in Apple Valley, as shown above.
