Town of Paradise responds to water shaming

Apr 8, 2015 3:59 PM by News Staff

The Town of Paradise is doing some damage control Wednesday after a resident snapped a photo of sprinklers on during Tuesday's rain storm.

The photo was taken on the corner of Neal Road and the Skyway, and shows the sprinkler running as the rain is coming down.

Earlier this month Governor Jerry Brown ordered California residents, businesses and other users to cut water usage by 25 percent.

Paradise officials posted a statement on their Facebook page acknowledging the mistake and vowing to take steps to avoid a repeat of the incident.
