    Now, just imagine if California wasn't pouring half its fresh water into the Pacific Ocean in order to save some stupid non-native bait fish…

    Just another way to control people

    OMG stop worrying about your grass and pools. So stupid

    May Allah Bless, In sha Allah

  • Sarabeth on June 5, 2022

    Just ban irrigation of lawns, landscaping, golf courses, and farms, plus private swimming pools and there's plenty of water for all. Those are luxuries and the west can live without them. If they don't give those up, the forced outcome will be far, far worse.

    If you want to use water as you wish, do it. Don't let the tyrannical government tell you what you can or can not do.

  • Tibore Goldberger on June 5, 2022

    Move to Florida we have plenty of water no problem

    The best thing you can do during a recession is nothing. Sit tight and wait it out. The US economy always recovers. And if you have any cash on hand, start buying into The crypto market, it is on sale! These are the times when wealth is created.

    Start serving GOD and stop pushing all this gay stuff and your drought will go away and the heavens will open up and bless you all with the water that you need. Continue your heathen ways and not even water conservation will save California. California is dying from SIN!

  • Joes B4 Hose on June 5, 2022

    Illegals pouring in.
    They need water too.

  • Brian Zulauf on June 5, 2022

    Stop trying to grow freakin rain forest plants in the desert plenty of plants are adapted for California but most of this stuff just dies even when you water it.

  • Dudley Dude on June 5, 2022

    If history is any indication, then this will cause people to waste even more water.

  • Hilary H on June 5, 2022

    Wait, they didn’t already restrict residential watering to 1 to 2 days a week? They should not allow it all. In FL we can only water 1 day in winter and 2 days in summer and it’s been that way for years. I don’t typically even water that much unless we’ve been super dry (like now)

    News Alert – We Are Taking Action

    Peter Navarrow Arrested, Guilty and Indicted!
    Steve Bannon Arrested, Guilty and Indicted!

    Mark Meadows Guilty and Contempt
    Dan Scavino Guilty and Contempt
    Civil Contempt For Trump Is Pending

    Now you know what the future with Trumpism will continue to be like !! More mass shooting will happen if DOJ Garland doesnt arrest all top Trumpists.

    No person is above the law! Listen to former DOJ Eric Holder, you can and need to prosecute Trump.

    since January 6 2021 not one single Republican lawmaker has been held accountable for their insurrection actions. they will win re-election if not arrested and they will cause more chaos and mass shootings. Put an end to the Trumpist Republicans and support the good Republicans.

    DOJ Garland is ending democracy by not prosecuting all top Trumpists.


    Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.

    Proverbs 10:9, NI

  • Haywood Jablowme on June 5, 2022

    Sweet… more tyranny under a government manufactured crisis… just what the doctor ordered. Why does California keep dumping its clean water reservoirs into the ocean? Why are Schwab's n.azi buddies in charge of California's water supply? Could we hear from someone without a thick german accent?

  • GASIS6BUCKSBRO on June 5, 2022

    This is only going to make the idiots who waste water waste even more water

  • Somebody on June 5, 2022

    Stop water subsidies to farms. Stop spending tax money just to shift water away from cities.

  • Tai Chi on June 5, 2022

    Give bigger incentives for home owners to pull up those lawns and use desert landscaping. That's just where we are.

  • lestera34 on June 5, 2022

    It needs to be no days per week. People are worried about their grass. They should be worried about empty stomachs and dehydration. God California pisses me off.

  • My Nintendo Gaming Feed on June 5, 2022

    Increase the water use and defy the restrictions!

  • wiley schmitt on June 5, 2022

    Let's plan a day where everybody goes without a shower or bath and see how much water is saved in just one day alone.

  • Shawn Hartmann on June 5, 2022

    A few of the wealthy (and overwhelmingly conservative) neighborhoods in Southern California have requested an exemption from the restriction. Don't they get it?
    You live in a desert. If your lawn is anything but rocks, you are unnecessarily taking water other people need to live. Climate change is an actual thing. Your lawn can die, and most people won't care.
