NPT City: Another reason to be mad at the PSB

psb-el-pasoSee how you are? Anyway, this is an old one, and you don’t hear folks grumbling so much. But you should have been here when it started. Here’s the announcement from the PSB:


(El Paso) — The time-of-day watering schedule for outdoor landscape irrigation goes into effect Wednesday. From April 1 through Sept. 30, watering is permitted before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m. on designated days.

Properties with addresses that end in even numbers may be watered on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays. Those with addresses that end in odd numbers may be watered on Wednesdays, Fridays or Sundays. The watering days for parks, schools, cemeteries, golf courses and industrial sites are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

El Paso’s landscape watering regulations are outlined in the City’s water conservation ordinance. Failure to comply is a Class C misdemeanor and can lead to fines of up to $500.00.

  1. I was under the impression the new disalination plant had solved our water shortage issues for 1,000 years…

    Seems to me as if the water restriction issue is just another way to impose an unnecessary tax (via Class C Misdemeanors) on the citizens of El Paso.

    I think we need a full and complete explanation from the PSB!!!!

  2. the desalination plant is a white elephant. it cost more electricity to run it than its worth right now.
    the water cost from it would double the rate just to pay the electric. its running at about 10 percent and the only thing going on is miss padilla showing school kids on field trips around the plant and telling them all and their teachers what a great job the psb is doing for el paso. of course its all bullshit, but when you have unlimited funds(example montoya) to promote yourself, hey, why not, right ?

  3. What we need is a complete and total audit from a disinterested third party. My guess we will learn many things like Paying good old ED for 10 years after leaving the PSB.

  4. I was at a Meeting on Monday, and ED was the Guest Speaker……He claimd after his arrival to El Paso, that we now have plenty of water, because of the new pumps installed, and the automation of their system, and the great job the Water Company has done.

    It appear that Good Ole ED, talks out of both sides of his mouth.
