Stop CALIFORNIA From Allowing A Giant Water Slide Through Major Cities During Statewide Drought

  • By: Paul Duffy
  • Target: Slide the City, City of Oakland, City of San Jose, City of Sacramento, City of San Francisco, City of Bakersfield, City of San Bernardino, City of San Diego, City of San Raphael, City of Vallejo, City of Hollywood, County of San Luis Obispo

California is entering another year of drought and many of us within the state are taking necessary steps to conserve water. Taking shorter showers, washing cars less, leaving swimming pools empty, letting our lawns go brown, all to conserve the small amount of water this area has.

"Slide the City" is a company based out of Salt Lake City, Utah, and plans to have these slide events in 15 cities throughout California in 2015.  On their website, www.slidethecity.com, there is no explanation for how much water will be used per event nor does the company make any attempt to explain where the water will come from.

The cities, counties, and suburbs listed in California per "Slide The City" are as follows:

Oakland
San Jose
San Luis Obispo
Sacramento
Santa Cruz
San Francisco
Bakersfield
San Bernardino
Fresno
Los Angeles
San Diego
Orange County
San Rafael
Vallejo
Hollywood
