It's gonna get awfully dry around here

I live in Ontario, and I've watched from afar as Los Angeles has instituted draconian water-saving measures with mandatory cuts in water usage, accompanied by fines. Well, forget that "afar" stuff. As I type this, the Ontario City Council is meeting and is debating some water conservation measures of their own:

Earlier in the year, the council urged its residents and businesses to voluntarily reduce water consumption by 10 percent....

The steepest measure in the plan proposes residents do away with refilling or filling pools and spas, Bowman said.

Multiple violations can result in a fine up to $500.

Well, brown is in for lawns this year, I guess.
