Perhaps they are preparing for the long-term aridification of the Southwest?


New California Law Limits How Much Water People Can Use

snippet:

California is now the first state in the nation to enact tough new water-efficiency standards. The controversial rules limit how many gallons a person can use inside their home per day.

“So that everyone in California is at least integrating efficiency into our preparations for climate change,” said Felicia Marcus, Chair of the State Water Resources Control Board.

So, what are the new rules?

In 2022, the new indoor water standard will be 55 gallons per person, per day. by 2030, it will fall to 50 gallons.

So sad we have to pass laws because people are to STUPID to conserve the one resource WE ALL need to survive.

Water reclamation/purification and desalinization are some things we as a country should be looking at.

That is really restrictive. On the carrier the budget was 20 gal/man/day. At one point we were going to get put on restrictions because we were sloppy and at 50 gal/man/day. But that's everything including cooking and laundry. Toilets were sea water. You can't ever leave a faucet running for any reason basically. I would expect that means zero irrigation use.

But ya... The southwest is going dry. Lots of issues everywhere. Doesn't matter if it's more or less, we have lots more people, and Americans are seriously wasteful.

I doubt there are many wells. But I dunno, just a hunch.
Oh, I'm not from Cali I just assumed it was like most other states. When you get out into the rural areas there is no municipal water supply. You have to have your own well.

It's like everything else they do.
They will FORCE the owners of the wells to install a Socialist Republik of Kalipornis mandated, regulated, certified, water meter - that must be monitored and checked by the state every single month just like they owned the water. THEN they will levy a tax per gallon to pay for the water meter checker, because you know - they aren't gonna do it for free, and THAT guy will get a great retirement package - so they will increase the tax rate some more.

Already have my 58 gallon drums buried and my pump system hooked up and ready to go

I'll bet the ruling elite will find a way to get around that BS. They already act like/talk like the laws don't apply to them, because they're so famous and so important.

People really do need to un-ass that **** hole and find a job/life somewhere else. As long as they leave the commie mind think in CA.

I'm surprised they didn't just add some ridiculous tax to each gallon. My parents used to tell me how when they first immigrated to NYC, water costs were part of property taxes. By the time they left, they were charged water, then sewer, with sewer rates being higher. I think the math worked out to around 25 cents per toilet flush.

Californians knew a hundred years ago that the state goes through long drought and rain cycles, so they build a huge reservoir system that has like 1000 reservoirs in it as well as massive water projects and set it up to support a population about half of what California has today. Then as the state continued to grow the environazi's on the left prevented the system, including dams and reservoirs, from being expanded.

Now they're screwed. Screwed by the very idiots they embrace.

Yeah really it serves them right. Don’t live in an environment that won’t support life.

Just another feel good law that will only effect the average citizen.
The hollywood elites and the other wealthy will just pay their fines and continue their daily activities.

Maybe if commiemexifornia wasn't so open to allowing the criminal invaders from South of The Border to set up housekeeping, there wouldn't be a water shortage!!!!!

Anybody ex USN Navy here? I lived on a big sailboat and practiced taking sea water showers with a fresh water rinse. Sucked big time. Tried to do laundry with sea water. That did not work out so well also.

How did the USN ships at sea water rationing work? They work you so hard you need 3 showers ever day? Sometimes more often than that? How do you stay clean? Did California research what they are doing?

My ex lady friend took 3 showers a day in hot humid weather. I got away with only one or two. 55 gallons per person per day is silly and non obtainable. Why would the powers that be want to even consider this?

I now live in SW OR USA. Different world. For now anyway. Do the new Navy Ships recycle most of their fresh water? Drinking. Cooking. Showering. Washing. Cleaning. Flushing. Don't get them mixed up. :)

Well I had to look at my last bill... I averaged 61 gal/person/day last year. That includes lawn and hot tub. So actually less than I thought. And I took all the stupid restrictors out of the showers. So 55 and 50... Not super extreme or unachievable.

Quoted from the following. http://www.med.navy.mil/directives/Pub/5010-6.pdf

"6-4. Potable Water Usage Requirement a. Proper indoctrination of the crew and attention to leaks and waste should limit potable water consumption to reasonable amounts. Water hours may at times become necessary on some ships and this may adversely impact personal hygiene practices. This is particularly applicable to troop-carrying ships loaded beyond their water-producing capacity. Personnel may keep clean and live under sanitary conditions, even with a limited water supply. If unusual conditions require drastic restrictions in the use of potable water, the allowances should not be less than 2 gallons per man per day to be used for drinking and cooking purposes. In hot environments it is necessary to provide sufficient drinking water quantity to prevent heat casualties. b. For new ship constructions, 50 gallons per day per man is specified by NAVSEA for design considerations. This encompasses a broad spectrum of potable water uses including drinking water, galley and scullery, personal hygiene, and laundry"
