USC has always hosed off its sidewalks on nearly a daily basis instead of sweeping them. This has always pissed me off, seeing as how this city is in the middle of a desert and we're raping the watershed of the entire southern half of the state to sustain it. It wasn't until recently that I found out this is actually illegal in Los Angeles, so today after seeing it again on my ride in I called LADWP and put in a complaint. Apparently they don't usually fine on the first offense, but if I see it again I'm going to call again. I'm going to be a pain in the ass about this, I don't care what the university thinks, I don't care if this makes me some damn dirty tree-hugger hippie. Water is precious enough when you're not in the desert; hosing off sidewalks is just plain bullshit.
