CORPUS CHRISTI - Water running off on the sidewalks and down the street. This is something a builder of a new home could get a citation for. But the builder who had this water violation should already know, since according to city records he has already received citations for water restriction violations at 2 other homes he built.
We tried to contact that builder, H & M homes owned by Hadi Mostaghasi, but he didn't answer the door or any of our calls.
The new owners of the homes had no idea about the citations but say they will make sure their new properties don't get cited again.
"We will follow the restrictions, so that won't be a problem," said new owner Donnie Ham.
The city has also handed out a third citation to a home, neighbors say, had been vacant for years.
"If the care takers would just come and respect the time frame to turn the... That would be fine," said neighbor Craig Thompson.
But just because the house is vacant, neighbors say that's no excuse to have sprinklers go off during hours residents aren't supposed to be watering. And the city feels the same way.
This is especially important now because the city is facing stage three drought conditions, and soon water restrictions could be even tighter. So If you are caught over watering or watering when you shouldn't, it could be 500 dollars down the drain.
