California can't stop the crazy. A couple that cut back on watering their lawn to conserve water in drought stricken California, may be fined up to $500 for having a brown lawn (external - login to view). If that wasn't bad enough, the State's new drought measures empower cities to fine citizens up to $500 for watering the lawn...

How much is a bucket of green dye and a spritzer bottle?

Huh, before Los Angeles had access to Colorado River water, they constructed a plant (external - login to view) to turn wastewater into potable water. The treated water was of better quality than imported aqueduct water:


That's the future in California, over 80 years ago they were already recycling waste water. Now they are trucking salmon upstream to their spawning grounds. Wild west.
