    So how are the uber rich going to get around this with their sprawling lawns etc.? I've already converted my front to dryscape. At the end of the day I can't see this going into effect the way it's currently structured. It's far too fair. Just the opposite of the energy penalty. Everyone was told to reduce their consumption by 10%. So what if you were already conserving?

    Yup. Washing your car in your driveway is illegal in my City and several others. Water conservation and stormwater ordinances (they don't like the soapy water to go down the stormdrain). My gripe was more that at 9pm, at least 12 of the drive thru express car washes in our area were out of order.

    Yeah, one of the many reasons I won’t be moving to CA.

    I’m a menace and a no-good criminal for committing the awful and despicable crime of self-washing a car.

    California natives are exempt from any water regulations as you can see from my backyard. :D

    My business phone lines are dead in the water, and even after pounding the supervisor over the phone I may not get a tech out here until tomorrow.

    Thanks, but it's nothing special. Since we're not going to stay here, I manage it with minimal work and investment. I water the piss out of that grass though (and use a top quality triple 15 fertilizer I get from a grower).

    Remember how much people freaked out because Obama bowed to an ally?

    There are no "California native" exemptions from water restrictions - unless you are an indigenous native on tribal land, except for health and safety variances for undue hardship, and then you need to apply for the exemption / variance and get it approved...

    California looks to permanently ban hosing off driveways, over-watering lawns

    If you have / had nice lawns, there were "spray tans" made available, but I thought were banned as well, but here is a fairly new 2018 video on such a product:
