I am happy to know that California water regulators approved fines for residents who waste water outside. Many people weren’t taking the drought seriously. I have seen many people water their lawns every day for long periods, including allowing the water to run off the sidewalks. Now that there is a fine for those who waste water, hopefully they will think twice before leaving the hose on for a long time just to water lawns, wash cars or do landscaping. I hope this will help prevent the drought from worsening.
