A tale of two houses (September 16, 2015)

The TOAV has been trying to garner support for the hostile takeover of AVRWC by appealing to the worst of the water wasters — the ten percent who account for 80 percent of the drought surcharges. Let’s compare one of these water wasters with someone who wants TOAV to keep its hands off Ranchos.

  Water waster Water conscious
Land value $89,259 $55,000
Building value $128,394 $164,000
Total value for property $217,653 $219,000
Land area (sq. ft.) 27,878 23,958
Bedrooms UNK. 3
Bathrooms UNK. 2
Occupants UNK. 2
Water usage (units) 150 4
Water usage (gallons) 112,200 2,992
Water cost $969.35 $60.40

Yes, you are reading that right. One of the leading proponents of the TOAV’s hostile takeover of AVRWC uses 37.5 times more water than a comparable home in Apple Valley, as shown above.
