Be aware this is about Mountain View provided water. If you get your water from California Water Service, as I do, then there are different days. Odd Tuesday & Saturday, Even number houses Wed & Sun. No watering 8am-6pm.

When it comes to drought, the only policy we Californians and our elected officials promote are conservation, conservation and conservation. What if this coming winter is dry followed by another dry year? What then? More water conservation followed by rationing? Mass migrations to other states?

California should follow Israel in the use of advanced desalination and water re-use technologies. We should be planing for dry years and implement new solutions now. It takes twenty years to bring a desalination plant online in our state. This is far too long.
