This is a really interesting thread. Three or four people have pointed out that the city once did overflights looking for backyard swimming pools, but everybody attributes to the city a different reason for doing that. I mean somebody said they wanted to increase taxes, somebody else said they wanted you to prove you had bought the water, other people said other things.
Looks to me like this could be the beginning of an urban myth. I love this kind of stuff.
