This was difficult to see for a landscaper.
One of our readers who goes by A Ivan Orduno on Facebook shared a video with us from Thursday night, when sprinklers were going off at the Richmond Civic Center in the middle of a rain storm.
Orduno, who says he’s a landscaper skilled in irrigation, said his filming took place near the intersection of Macdonald Avenue and 27th Street. For the city to be shooting off sprinklers in the middle of a rain storm and during a drought is “totally ridiculous,” Orduno said.
“The sprinklers are not even calibrated; they are over-spraying into the benches,” he said. “This is where our taxes go: wasting water.”
He later added, “I hope the city will do something about this. I’m just tired of seeing this, it’s pretty sad.”
