Salida Water – August 2005 – Colorado Central Magazine
On the evening of July 5, just as Salidans were relaxing from a busy Independence Day weekend, police cars with sirens and bullhorns were making the rounds.
We were outdoors and heard them from several blocks away. All we could make out from the announcement was something about “water,” and my first thought was “Boy, they’re really cracking down on people who water their lawns on the wrong days. Sounds like a full-bore SWAT team.”
