1. A plan to transform a L.A. street into a 1,000-foot waterslide is drawing questions about whether it’s a responsible use of resources during California’s drought.
The company Slide the City, which hopes to bring a giant waterslide to L.A., hosted one of its “soapy vinyl” water parties in Salt Lake City last month, and similar events are reportedly in the works in 44 other cities.
3. Many who signed the petition called the expected water use irresponsible and questioned how the city could allow it.
5. The company could not immediately be reached for comment, but two tweets responded to the complaints of the petition.
7. In California, four other cities are also listed as future possible locations. So far, no other dates in the U.S. have been announced.
8. California’s drought remains a state of emergency, with fines in effect in some areas for excessive water use.
