Get off my...dirt?

I'm spending my lunch hour composing an Empoprise-BI Business Blog post in my head, and it occurred to me that I could use the phrase "get off my lawn" in the post.

Then I remembered that I live in California.

What's a lawn?

P.S. I thought I had posted Ontario's water conservation ordinance to this blog, but I hadn't - I had just posted it to Facebook. Let me rectify my lack of dissemination.

Ontario City Council Approves Stage 2 Mandatory Water Restrictions

In response to California’s record drought, on April 1, 2015 the Governor signed an Executive Order mandating a statewide 25% reduction in water use and approved specific mandatory Emergency Conservation Regulations. As part of these mandatory Regulations, water suppliers (like the City of Ontario) are required to implement their local Water Conservation Plans.

On May 5th, the Ontario City Council declared a water shortage and moved from Stage 1 into Stage 2 of the City’s Water Conservation Plan (Plan), effective immediately.
