Say It Ain't So, Lance

Turns out cycling superstar Lance Armstrong, known for his strong social conscience, is the largest consumer of water in Austin, Texas. According to this New York Times article, his Spanish-Colonial home used 330,000 gallons of water in the month of July, about 38 times the average homeowners' usage. He's not acting like a good role model considering the city is having a dry spell and residents are being asked to cut back on watering their lawns.

So far Armstrong's response has been encouraging. On being informed of the situation by the Austin-American Statesman, the newspaper that originally broke the story, he responded, “I’m a little shocked. There’s no justification for that much water.” He added, "I need to fix this." Maybe he should take a look at our article of water-saving solutions.
