Employ cameras at agricultural stops to check for stolen cars and outstanding arrest warrants.
Comment dismissing purple pipes as "expensive" not relevant. Reclaimed water production reduces burden on sewer plants, provides dependable supply for irrigation even in drought and liberates a like amount of potable water and pay for themselves to boot.
