Caltrans watering asphalt

Coming home on Friday night at 9:30 p.m. I took the Broad Street exit off 49. I was shocked to find that Caltrans was watering the asphalt on the ramp. There was water running down the road.

The public is asked to save water and because of that my lawn is brown. Shouldn’t the state be doing the same and paying attention to where and how the spinklers are set?
