Mountain View Voice Mountain View Voice: Letters to the Editor (February 6, 2009)
More housing means less water
We want to thank you for the very informative story about the proposed developments at San Antonio Center and Minton’s Lumber in the Jan. 30 Voice.
Our idea is that we are at capacity on homes in Mountain View. We also view the idea that every new home development in Mountain View is connected to the water system, using up precious water that is in short supply because of a very serious California drought. Why should established homeowners have heavy restrictions put on them when extra water is consumed by recently completed homes?

Indeed. What can we do to stop people moving into Mountain View from taking up all the precious fluids? Those damn dirty former renters! We must stop building anything, anywhere, anytime.
We need true leadership to stop this! Only Brigadier General Jack Ripper can help us save our precious fluids.
