--Green tyranny.

It never ends in California. Just one regulation after another.

That sounds awful. I would just probably shower at a place like planet fitness everyday to get around it.

That limit is on indoor use, and there is no way to enforce this without requiring each residence to install two separate water meters.

Once again, the climate warriors make a lot of noise without any practical effect.

Got Nulli's panties in a twist pretty quick. Mattress NW flag inbound.

So it's unenforceable virtue-signaling until they find a way to enforce it. That's California moonbeamers for you.

You can do all 3. Take a quick shower , Wash 2 loads of clothes and instead of putting the water down the drain collect it in 5 gallon buckets and use that water to flush the toilet on number 2's only. Easy peasy.

Easy peasy.

Not as easy as just sucking up as much water as you can possibly pull off the main. Like the Founders intended.

If you want to see a boomer get agitated, suggest a reduction in consumption.

Of anything.

Who knows what Moonbeamers will restrict or ban in 2020. The possibilities are endless. Humans provide a target-rich environment for the petty tyrants who lay awake at night dreaming of things to regulate.

Suggest?

JPW Boomers and myself understand that its not a reduction in consumption if you are rich, poor, government or special class....

In the end we know the only person affected by the "reduction laws" is the middle class.

Name a law in reduction that didn't have a carve out for an entitled class.

You can do this if you wanna live like a poor Filipino in a Nipa hut in the more primitive provinces of Mindanao(think real life Gilligan's island)

I've done it, but you can bet your last dollar your average pampered Californians won't do it. Even the ones who propose this.

We're supposed to go forwards not backwards

In 2016, many crapped their pants and took a shower with their clothes on.

LOL so you think answering with the whine "why should I have tooooooo when they dooooonn't" rebuts my point?

This is unnecessary. If only faux green Marxists would allow investments in infrastructure so we could maintain first world status.

"If you want to see a boomer get agitated, suggest a reduction in consumption."

Pretty much only applies to the conservative ones.

Most boomers I know (and that's more than a few, because I'm also one) would offer an opposite reaction.

But I live in a college town, and associate mostly with educated folks.

IOW, I live in a "bubble".

55 gallons a day, indoor use?? I have been hauling my own water 300 gallons at a time for a couple years (outside city plumbing, no well) so i am more aware of my water usage than I have been. 55 gallons seems quite generous.

Wade in poo, be immolated, slide into the ocean, catch bubonic plague, get shot by a mexican gangbanger...calitopia really has it all.

55 gallons is virtually impossible for an individual to use in a day. The CA average is something like 200 gallons per capita per day, thanks to the recklessness of trend crops like almonds.

Limiting individual use does absolutely nothing to curb water use in our state. Punishing the bad actors is the only solution" we need to end the chokehold on water by trump counties.

There is no fine for individuals. the fines are for the "water agency"

"The water agency has to create a water budget that combines all usage across their entire service area, and then determine how they are going to meet this budget. If they go over, they may have to give rebates for tearing out lawns, credits for low-flow fixtures, raise water rates, charge for irrigation meter installation, or impose fines for using too much.

How they will implement the water budget has not been determined, but they will be subject to monthly reporting requirements and fined $1000 per day when they go over. If they exceed the budget in a dry year, the fine is $10,000 every day they go over.

Let's just use as much as we want for what we want until it runs out and then panic.

Potable water is a finite resource that everyone needs to live.

If your diet consisted exclusively of Big Macs and buckets of KFC you'd have to flush that many times too.
