Letter: Why, when there are water restrictions, does water constantly flow to Cloverdale hanging baskets?

The city hanging flower pots are being watered 24 hours a day.

To the editor;

I don’t have the skill or leverage to look into or correct a problem I feel exists in lower Cloverdale in regards to water waste by the city.

If you go through lower Cloverdale, specifically in front of the lawnmower repair shop and motor bike shop the city hanging flower pots are being watered 24 hours a day.

I noticed this last year when there were water restrictions on. It is happening this year as well. Water constantly feeds the hanging baskets for the city. The water overflows and goes all over the street. I talked to the lawnmower business where I was at and they said it went on all summer.

It’s not right. A huge waste of water and hypocritical of the city. I would love to measure how much water flow per hour per plant. I bet it would be shocking.

Is it only Cloverdale or all of Surrey?

Well this is my two cents.
