We are in yellow alert. That means the drought is extraordinary.
In the pamphlet, it also says the following (If need be you will get one in the mail)
"This isn't your father's or your grandfather's drought"
"Quite frankly, we don't know when the drought will be over"
Thus, say we were not in yellow alert, so say the drought continues (Now we are 3 years in)
If we go to orange, (I assume we are close to it in one way or shape)
Means mandatory water conservation. So they would install a device that would make it so that you not exceed your limit of water per however many unites (days, weeks, etc)
There's a lot more things in there too. Like.....Buy rain barrels for $85, (Not mandatory btw)
Also, there is a number where you can report entities that waste water unnecessarily. Anyways, there is way more but I don't want to ramble on and on.
What do you guys think? Do any of you live in Cali? Or any of the effected states?
