Big Slip 'N Slide: A Water-Wasting Culprit or Easy Target?

Hosted by

A huge 1000 foot Slip 'N Slide is planning to come to downtown LA. For one likely hot September day, kids and adults can pay to splash and swoop their way out of the inner city heat.

Sounds like a blast - but Slip 'N Slide naysayers are questioning if this is the right message for the city to send in the midst of California’s devastating drought. Everyone from the Department of Water and Power to the LA Times has weighed in on the wisdom of this day of watery fun in the sun.

Is the drought-shaming deserved? What about all those southern California swimming pools and water parks and golf courses?
