Thanks for this post. I recently heard an arborist speak and he said we'll

I want to urge each of you to be very frugal with water use, always. There
is a great misconception in "the land of plenty" that we can use and do
whatever we want without consequences. We can no longer remain unconscious

Reduce water use for the essential needs and stop using water in ways you
don't really need. You'll be amazed at how good it feels when you see how
much less water you're using.
