California Governor Brown Hears Business Concerns About Drought Plan

On Thursday Jerry Brown, the Governor of California, promised that he will be considering the concerns which have been raised by businesses that have been affected by his order which he made that saw the use of water in urban areas being cut by25%.

Brown made the order following a prolonged drought which has been witnessed in the U.S. most populous state.

On Thursday Brown, who is a democrat, met up with representatives from businesses who have raised concerns that his order will affect how their business operate. Some of the business which raised their concerns includes cemetery operators, water providers, landscapes and swimming pool builders.

John Norwood, California’s Pool and Spa Association president said after the meeting that, “We shouldn't be shutting down particular industries."

He went on to add that several water districts and cities have imposed restrictions when building and filing new swimming pools and thus killing the business of those who are involved in the process of designing and installing them.

According to Norwood, once the pools have been filled with water they tend to use very little water as compared to lawns which they typically end up replacing.

“People put in outdoor kitchens, seating areas, pools - it all replaces the lawn,” Norwood said.

While speaking with reporters after the meeting, Brown said that he has learned a lot from business leaders who presented their complaints. He also pointed out the fact that he has been able to take a tip from Norwood with regards to how evaporation in pools can be slowed down by a certain chemical.
