<br />CITIZEN ASKS FOR MORE WATER. Mr. A. A: Teeter, Jr., 4500 Drexel Avenue, asked
<br />that Council follow through on its plans for two additional wells--and secure
<br />more, if necessary to eliminate the annual sprinkling bans. It was explained
<br />that Edina's difficulty results in the great disparity between the volume of
<br />water used per day during 95% of the year (for which the present system is
<br />entirely adequate) and the great volume used for sprinkling during the summer
<br />dry spells--this being the highest per-capita volume in the country; that the
<br />Council feels it is impractical to burden water users with high rates year-
<br />around for the privilege of full-time sprinkling ten or iwelve dagSvr$gh year.
<br />Telling Council he would be willing to pay higher rates2 &5°?,daer sald he
<br />believes that taxpayers may be paying as much in repairs for ruined lawns as
<br />they would be paying in increased water rates. He also suggested that Council
<br />spend attitional moneys for laboratory equipment, saying the Hater Superintendent 's
<br />present laboratory is one which %auld make any high school kid stick up his nose".
