    Doing anything to conserve water? Like saving your bathwater and using a bucket to flush the toilet after dropping a bomb?

    they are going to cut off some farm water PDQ. next will be pools and lawns. we are in a desert, i think we'll be much more aware of that in a few years. the good news is, the expansion of this metro area will finally end.

    the first thing i remember when i got to california in 1972, was a radio -station saying - if it's yellow, be mello. if it's brown, flush it down.

    looks like we're about there again. i'm pretty green when it comes to water. quick showers, lots of paper plates and plastic so not much dish washing. desert landscape around the house.

    we have too many man made lakes and fountains etc here. that should have changed back in the 70s.

    Expansion of Phoenix actually helps conserve water if it takes out farmland :lo5:

    Global warming, excuse me, climate change is simultaneously causing a drought in California and flooding in Texas. :grad:

    Unless the Great Lakes dry up I think I'm good.

    I don't waste water though.
