Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Ok next they will make a law that no one can have any body odor even though you can't take a shower every day. Why do I think the really rich can get around this some how lol

Because they always do. I read that article earlier and was floored. I seem to recall last year or earlier that while rationing was in effect, there were politicians, and actors that were the biggest abusers of water. California lately just seems to be its own worse enemy, leads one to wonder how long before California implodes.

I remember as a kid in 1977 living off base in Okinawa, Japan and going through water rationing. Thing is though, there the water was shut off for 72 hours, back on for 24 hours, off 72 for several weeks in a row. It was amazing how quick a kid gets funky in hot, humid tropical weather. We would cheat and go to the base pool to use the showers there. Was so happy when we got base housing and didn't need to deal with that anymore. But those 6 months off base stuck with me that's for sure.

How do the words "Desert South West" escape these people?

They should have built a water collection/storage infrastructure to accommodate the needs of the population. but NOOOooooo!
Its more important to import the homeless & hopeless in volume, making the problem even worse.

The Suadis built huge desalination plants for water why didn't they do that in Calf its exspensive but unlimited water. Use the 10 billion they were going to use on High speed rail lol

Use too much water, like cell phone hours, and you will be fined. Follow the money trail. The STATE dictates how you will live,or else.....

A few years ago the EPA wanted to have power over farm ponds,my dad was going to fill his 2 ponds in if they tried.

I understand we should conserve water but what about all those low flow toilet's you had to flush 5 times lol

Many Caribbean islands don't have any fresh water, they either tank it in or desalinate.
Its just a question of the will to do something against do nothing.

Why would you take a vacation in Calf if you can't shower or wash your clothes while there.
Those depend on rain fall and only so much rain falls in a year

Why would I go there, period?
Back in the 90's I was offered a prestigious position teaching photography at "Brooks Institute of Photography" in Santa Barbara, California. I couldn't match up some of the demands with the rewards & so passed on the position. Suddenly they folded overnight, in a flash, so in retrospect its probably one of the better "losses" I've endured!

I am familiar with the desal units when I worked oversea's. They work but the electrical cost and material corrosion are high. Everyone has to have water and you will pay no matter how expensive!

Yep....you are correct. The "RO" is just an ultra filter that screens out the Sodium and Chlorine ions. The reject stream is about 25%+/- of the incoming flow and goes right back into the ocean.

Didn't some one invent a straw you could use to take out salt in water or have I watched too many sci fi shows

This is ridiculous. 55 gallons of water a day for a family of 4. That means low flow shower head and each get take a 5 minute shower and you are at 40 gallons, standard toilet each flush twice a day and there is another 13 gallons, standard newer washing machine 27 gallons, newer dishwasher 6 gallons of water you just got a fine and went 31 gallons over. That doesn’t include water for brushing your teeth, washing your hands, cooking, or watering the lawn and flowers. If you have young children and they need a bath that is minimum 25 gallons of water. Even if you bathe both kids together it’s more water than the showers.

Literally a family of 4 can each shower and flush the toilet twice and only have 2 gallons to spare to wash your hands and brush your teeth. If you have an old 3.5 gallon flush toilet you got a fine.

Next day you do laundry and wash dishes and each flush the toilet twice you have 9 gallons of water to spare so you can wash your hands, brush your teeth, make some pasta and get a whopping 5 gallon jug of water on the lawn or flowers. Again if you have an old 3.5 gallon flush toilet instead of 13 gallons you used 28 gallons so no water left over and you get a fine.


It is impossible to do without spending money to upgrade to 1 gallon flush toilets, 1.5 gallon showerheads, High efficiency 14 gallon washer and 4 gallon dishwashers. Now you are looking at dropping $3,000 and still having to live like animals.

Why do I think the ones who wrote the law won't have to follow it
