a drought is no time for a giant water slide in los angeles
Sorry to be Debbie Downer, but with three plansblock- It\'s a bad idea to slide into the city center next month. The concept itself is great. Sliding city will be 1,000 in the center of the city-foot- Long vinyl with a pool at the end. Like- The sky water park falls from the sky. Photos from last month\'s Salt Lake City slide show many happy people frolicking in the water and sliding on inflatable pool toys. It looks like a public summer event like L. said. A. It\'s a fashionable and interesting city. The problem? A lot of water was wasted. ------------ Filed. 13, 5 a. m. : Earlier versions of the article said that the event would use as much water as the water lost during the main break on the water near UCLA.
