Within four years, Californians who want to do their laundry on any given day effectively will be forced to sacrifice taking a shower, thanks to two laws signed by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown.
Beginning in the year 2022, a limit of 55 gallons per person daily will be the standard for indoor residential water use in the Golden State, notes the Federalist.
The two bills, SB 606 and AB 1668, require cities, water districts and large agricultural water districts to set strict annual water budgets.
The law does not impose fines on individual Californians.
