Anything out of your experience isn't possible ?

I didn't say that. Indeed, you were the one who said that. I said my experience does not match yours, and gave specific examples.

Would you like to see the bills ?

I don't need to see your bills. I have owned homes since 1979 in three different states. None have had tiered metering, although I know that it exists in some areas.

Lawns don't need to appear to be putting greens anywhere.

No they don't. But then I prefer that my lawn not go brown, which is what happened in all three areas before a system was installed. If it was a burden on the (local) environment then I would rethink it, but that has not been true anywhere I have lived (absent temporary drought conditions.)

If you don't want to have grass, or green grass, I don't care. Why do you car so much if I do?

Having grown up in the Pittsburgh area, I never saw the need for a sprinkler system unless you are anal about your grass and need to win an award for best lawn in the neighborhood.

Well, it wasn't that at all. But in Mt. Lebanon most of my neighbors had them, and nobody was out to win awards. We just wanted a nice appearance. Some people don't care. I accept that. I'm one who does.

Oregon, Washington, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana.

Two thirds of Oregon is classified as dry climate. Likewise Washington. Have you ever been there, in the eastern 2/3 of the state? It's mostly all brown, as far as the eye can see. Likewise there are parts of other states which receive little rainfall, and some areas of those states which get buckets.
