Re "Please step away from the hose, sir," Aug. 16

In response to a recent inquiry, I am pleased to report that my most recent DWP bill showed a 28% reduction in water use over the same period last year. Over the last year, we have reduced our water use 27% when compared with the same 12-month period the prior year.

We've cut our family water use -- like so many other Angelenos -- by reducing watering outdoors and taking simple steps to conserve water indoors.
