Uluntu lwe-Bay Area lujolise kwindawo ethandwayo yendawo yokuhlala yasekhaya: ingca.



Kumhlaba othe gqolo ukunxanwa, amagosa abhala imithetho emitsha ethintela abaninimzi ukuba bafake ingubo enkulu yengca eluhlaza - indawo enomdla yokudlala izilwanyana kunye nomntwana. Ingca ekhoyo ikhuselekile, kodwa imithetho emitsha yokonga amanzi iya kuthintela ubungakanani bengca kumakhaya amatsha kunye neeprojekthi ezintsha zengca kunye negadi ukuya kwikota enye yendawo yonke yekhaya. I-turf engaphezulu ivunyelwe kuphela ukuba abaninimzi benza izibalo ukubonisa ukuba bayalondoloza kwezinye iindawo.

Kwiyadi ye-2,000-square-foot-yard, yi-500 yeenyawo zengca yengca - malunga nobukhulu begaraji yeemoto ezimbini. Ngelixa livuleke ngokwaneleyo kwipikiniki ecocekileyo, akulunganga ukuphosa ibhola ekhatywayo, ukuleqa inja okanye ukudlala umdlalo ovuselelayo wecroquet.





Abathandi bengca bayaxhathisa ukuncothulwa, besithi ingca esandul’ ukunqunyulwa ivakala imnandi, inevumba elimnandi kwaye ikhangeleka ilungile—isongeza ukuthomalalisa isibheno namaxabiso epropathi.

Kodwa izixeko kunye neengingqi zithi azinakhetho - kufuneka zinciphise ukusetyenziswa kwamanzi. Isiqingatha sawo onke amanzi asetyenziswa ngabahlali basekuhlaleni agalelwa emhlabeni, bathi.



Ukuqala kule nyanga, njengoko iCalifornia ijonge isibhakabhaka kunyaka wesithathu wembalela, urhulumente ufuna ukuba lonke uluntu luthobele ummiselo wokongiwa kwamanzi. Yaphunyezwa ngo-2006, ifuna izindlu zangasese ezikumgangatho ophezulu kunye nezixhobo zombane kulwakhiwo olutsha kwaye ithintela ukusetyenziswa kwamanzi kwiigadi.

Kodwa izixeko zeBay njengeMenlo Park kunye neSan Jose zenza imithetho engqongqo eyenza esona sikhalo sikhulu.



Sinomntwana oneminyaka engama-2 ubudala, oneminyaka emi-3 ubudala kwaye uya kufumana umalusi waseJamani - kwaye bonke bafuna indawo yokugijima kunye nokujikeleza, utshilo uCatherine Carlton waseMenlo Park, ofaka i-landscaping entsha - kuquka i-1,000 square feet of grass. -kwikhaya lakhe eSharon Park kodwa wasinda kwimithetho emitsha kuba izicwangciso zakhe zamkelwa sisixeko kulo nyaka uphelileyo.

Ndiyasiqonda isizathu sokuba sifune ukonga, kodwa lo ngumba wobomi obusemgangathweni. Kufuneka kubekho ezinye iindlela, ezifana nokuyekelela ekusebenziseni amanzi angwevu, utshilo.



I-Menlo Park yeyona ikude phakathi koluntu lwengingqi, kunye nemithetho yayo eyilwayo yogcino-mhlaba yogcino lwamanzi esingise kwingxoxo-mpikiswano yoluntu ekupheleni kwenyanga. ISan Jose iza kubamba iindibano zovakaliso-zimvo kwimodeli yayo kwiinyanga ezimbalwa ezizayo.

Asinguye wonke umntu okhweleyo. Ibhunga leMenlo Park uJohn Boyle, usongxowankulu oye wafaka ingca enkulu kubantwana bakhe abathathu kwiminyaka elishumi eyadlulayo, uyakuxhasa ukongiwa kwamanzi kodwa uthi isindululo sesixeko sakhe - esinciphisa ubungakanani bengca, sithintela ingca kwithambeka kwaye sinqande ukunkcenkceshela ukuya kwintsimbi yeshumi ebusuku. ukuya ku-7 a.m. — akulunganga kwaye kuyahlula.



Izithintelo zinokutyhafisa abahlali ekuhlaziyeni iiyadi zabo, ukuba oko kuthetha ukuba bagqibela ngeyona ngca ibaluleke kakhulu kwibhloko, utshilo. Ugqiba ngemeko apho umntu omnye enotshani obukhulu anokuthi adlale kuyo - kwaye ummelwane wakhe akanayo.

Ithatha amalungelo epropathi yabucala kude kubaninimzi, utshilo. Uthe uzakufuna ulondolozo ngendlela yokuhlawula, ukuze abasebenzisi abanzima babhatale ngaphezulu, endaweni yezithintelo zengubo.

Yintoni ecacayo kukuba ingcamango yesinye isixeko sobungakanani bomndilili wengca yenye ingcamango yesinye isixeko, kakuhle, ipaki.

Abona basebenzisi bamanzi baninzi ngabahlali baseLos Altos Hills, abangakwaziyo ukwakha ikhaya kuyo nayiphi na ipasile engaphantsi kwehektare enye - kwaye bafumane ilanga elininzi, ngoko unkcenkceshela kakhulu. Umhlali oqhelekileyo wase-Hillsborough, e-Atherton nase-Woodside usebenzisa amanzi amaninzi ngokuphindwe kahlanu njengomhlali wase-Daly City, apho amaqashiso amancinci kwaye agutyungelwe yinkungu, kwaye phantse kathathu kunabemi baseSan Jose.

Abantu basekuhlaleni baziva becinezelekile komnye umthombo, ngokunjalo. Ababoneleli bamanzi basekuhlaleni bathi abayi kuba namanzi aneleyo okuvula i-spigots ngokubanzi njengoko ummandla ukhula. Kwinqanaba langoku lokusetyenziswa, iimfuno zamanzi zommandla ziya kudlula izibonelelo kwi-2015.

Ukuze abantu abazizigidi ezisisi-1.7 babe nonikezelo lwamanzi oluthembekileyo, kufuneka silondoloze, utshilo uNicole Sandkulla, injineli yobutyebi bamanzi kunye ne-Arhente ye-Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency, eyabhala ummiselo wokuba izixeko ezininzi zasekuhlaleni ziqala. qwalasela.

Kuya kuvumela i-turf kwi-25 yepesenti yokujonga umhlaba. Amashumi asibhozo ekhulwini omhlaba oseleyo kufuneka abe zizityalo zemveli okanye ezikwaziyo ukumelana nembalela kwaye zijikelezwe ubuncinane zii-intshi ezimbini ze-mulch. Kufuneka kubekho iinkqubo zokunkcenkceshela ezisebenzayo.

Abanini bezindlu abafuna ingca eninzi banokuyila uhlahlo lwabiwo-mali lwamanzi kwindawo yabo, isicwangciso esicacileyo somhlaba esisebenzisa ifomyula yemathematika ukubala ukusetyenziswa kwamanzi ngokusekelwe kwiintlobo zezityalo, amanzi asekuhlaleni, umhlaba kunye nezinye izinto. Uhlahlo lwabiwo-mali kufuneka lube phantsi komgangatho othile wosetyenziso.

Wonke loo msebenzi, kunye nenkcitho, iya kukhawulezisa uthando olunciphayo nengca, utshilo umyili weMenlo Park uSusan Ogle.

Ingca yayikhe yabonisa umhlaba, kwaye yayithetha ububanzi kunye nendawo evulekileyo, nokuba yayincinci, utshilo. Kodwa ngoku iingca zithetha ukuchithwa kwamanzi kunye nokungazinzisi, ngoko ziya ziyancipha.
