If lots of residents cut back their water usage, the rates will be increased so that you continue to pay the same, but for less water (this has happened before).
If there truely was a water shortage, those people who pressured Pleasanton to build 3000+ more apartments would have acted differently. That is a 10% increase in residents. Increase your water usage by 10%, the government already has agreed that we have adequate water to support this increase.
By the way, can anyone remember a time when the rainfall was MORE than average? Seems like we only hear of shortages each year. How does the math work that every year can be less than the average?

If we're on the same page and you also encourage conversation, lets talk!

I know, how can there possibly be a water shortage. The government is making this up so they can charge more for water. I bet Jerry Brown isn't decreasing his water use. Let's all just use more water. It rains a lot in Seattle.
