Mormon temple's lawn becomes drought casualty

LOS ANGELES (AP) - California's first Mormon temple is letting its lawn go brown as drought concerns have water users tightening their consumption statewide.

The Los Angeles Times reports church officials couldn't be reached for comment, but security guard Jarom Ellsworth says gardeners stopped watering the grass about a month ago to save water.

The temple is in West LA, one of several affluent California communities to get water use flack over a recent UCLA study that shows poorer communities use roughly three times less water than their wealthier counterparts.
