I heard a radio spot the other day presumably paid by the City of Guelph informing the community that we're at Level 0 -- or the Blue level -- and to make careful use of water.
I think it's generally wise to reinforce the whole water conservation spiel.
But I wonder whether people might tune out what sounds like a water use warning -- when seemingly there is no drought-like issue at present. And, if the ad was a paid one, was that a great investment?
It seemed to me a cooler and wetter summer. The high and green grass all over the place would seem evidence of this too. Hearing the water advisory level spot amid such conditions seemed odd to me.
Perhaps the spot was a free community-service one. Or, maybe it was pre-paid, a long time back, for a time in the calendar where historically such advisories came at low-water times.
