California is suffering from one of its worst droughts in decades — so why did a Southern California couple receive a fine for trying to conserve water?

The drought in California is now so bad that the government has instituted emergency conservation measures, including threatening residents with a $500 fine for wasting water.

Yet some cities are continuing to issue $500 fines of their own — as a penalty for having brown lawns.

A couple in Glendora, California was doing their best to save water by not using their sprinklers or their hose. As a consequence, their lawn started to turn brown. They then received a notice from the city informing them that if they didn’t “green up” their lawn in the next 60 days, they could face fines of up to $500 and criminal prosecution.

As the state suffers, yard appearance should be cities’ last priority, especially when Californians are just trying to comply with new rules to help their environment.

Tell Glendora to waive the $500 brown-lawn penalty and concentrate on protecting California’s water supply!
