Shay Dilloway

Judges have chosen another winner for the KPCW Summer Water Waste Photo Contest.

Thirteen-year-old Shay Dillloway sent in a photo from his neighborhood. In the photo, you can see water spewing into the street.  He wrote that water is being wasted because it’s shooting off the law and going down the gutter to a storm drain and then to the water treatment plant. Not only is water being wasted, but energy is being waster too. He suggests that the sprinkler owners turn down the water pressure so that water only hits the law and not the driveway and gutter.
