Now It’s Against the Law in California to Shower and Do Laundry on the Same Day

Now It’s Against the Law in California to Shower and Do Laundry on the Same Day, by Daisy Luther.

The mandatory water conservation standards will be permanent, according to their wording, and not just for use in times of crisis. To make a long story short, now that these bills are law, it’s illegal to take a shower and do a load of laundry in the same day because you’ll exceed your “ration.” …

If you’re wondering how the government would know how much water your family is using, the utility providers will be obligated to rat you out or face massive fines. And they’re encouraged to spy in all sorts of creative ways. They “shall use satellite imagery, site visits, or other best available technology to develop an accurate estimate of landscaped areas.” …

Oh, and don’t worry, rich people. There will be “provisions for swimming pools, spas, and other water features.” So you can still have your pretty fountains and pools while the rest of the peons take 2 showers a week. One might wonder if ‘variances” will apply to the wealthy for their landscaping needs.

Fines for disobeying are $1,000 per day, but $10,000 per day in critically dry years.

Good old Californian lefties. Water falls for free out of the sky, but after years of mismanagement it’s come to this.
