When i was a kid, California had a terrible draught in the 80's. We were on water rationing. Watering your lawns and garden was banned before 6 P.M.
and you had a set limit of how much water you could use. If you went over that limit, they would come and shut your water off and fine you.
My family, when we took showers, would leave the plug in the bathtub drain when we took our daily showers. Water would collect in the bottom of the
tub and after everyone had shopwered, we used the water on our flowers and garden. We, like many other people, let our lawns die.
So yeah, the U.S, has alot bigger draught areas and they do use water rationing.
