Get used to seeing the below people.

That first-ever "Drought Level III" declaration will ban any watering of lawns, golf courses and gardens, forbid fresh water use for swimming pools and close commercial car washes.

yes because water use is being abused. Population doubles but use triples.

Hopefully desalination technology will improve. That seems to be the future.

It is a viable technology but expensive. Conservation is the first order with water use. Part of the reason is the municipalities do not want to invest in more treatment plants when 20 to 30% of the water is outright wasted.

Too bad all past years stimulus "infrastructure" improvements didnt include anything that actually contributes to our infrastructure.

And it seems it some areas water is plentiful and it is better to be consumed to keep prices down and in other areas conservation is critically needed.

They should probably just raise the prices and that would keep more people to keep their businesses and would naturally punish those that are wasting. Supply and demand would work it out.

Prices have come up some.... or should I say a tiered rate.

Sewer rates have risen the most
