If it's yellow, let it mellow.
If it's brown, flush it down.

Is this one of the States that don't allow you to collect your own rainwater?

Doesn't matter when it hasn't rained since March

I recently changed my shower head for one that uses a third less water (5 large bottles of Jack Daniels per minute instead of 15). I could probably step down to half that again but still haven't mastered the 2 minute shower.
I once had a girlfriend that could completely wash in 40 seconds but for some reason my mind would wander when she tried to teach me the ritual.

We live in Northern CA, in the Central Valley in an unincorporated be Village on the edge of the Sierra foothills. We've had the water restrictions in TFA since before we bought our home & we retired here in 2014. We added rain barrels when we did a major remodel in Winter 2015-2016 & changed the landscaping watering to a drip system because we have a large garden & orchard (i bought the house because of the large lot so Hubby can garden; he likes to cook & can) & we wanted to offset the lap pool & jacuzzi, also, some of the garden is xerographic (?). We currently pay $57.10/mo fixed rate for 30k gals for residential customers for water & sewer, & we've never gone over our allocation; the excess charge is $10/1kgals.

Hubby's 3 Sisters have a café bakery here serving breakfast & lunch 7 days/wk. The menu states "Water Upon Request" & has since they opened in 1997. The Sisters tell us it's always women tourists passing through to/from Yosemite who make an issue of not being automatically served a glass of water, never men. Coffee/tea refills are free but charged for a new tea bag (free hot water if you bring your own tea bags).

They are getting ready for a full-service reopening 15 June.

Here is The Valley of The Great Salt Lake in the midst of the worst drought in decades I still enjoy all the water I can eat and drink for $20 a month.

I'm in Georgia and 10 years after our big drought was over we still have the jacked up water rates.

Once consumers get used to the new price, it never goes down. We had a dairy fat shortage a couple of years ago, prices doubled and stayed.

Umm, I would say that this is the precise reasons it matters!
