Stressing resources and infrastructure for no reason is ridiculous,
Sure it is, as is buying a car that gets 8 mpg. Who are we to say citizens don't have the right to make ridiculous decisions, so long as they are paying for them? Using your Babs example, if she's paying $2000/month (of her own money) for her water what do you care what she does with it? Unless you have reason to believe that her waste is subsidized by you as a taxpayer, what difference does it make to you?

All of these arguments could just as easily be applied to electricity and gasoline supplies, and the answer would be the same. Don't you agree?

That isn’t hurting government infrastructure, but the government does justifiably put limits on the weight that you put on the roads.

Plumbing is very much a regulated business and industry and has been for many centuries.
