Now It’s Against the Law in California to Shower and Do Laundry on the Same Day

Governor Jerry Brown is retiring but not before he passes a few draconian laws as parting gifts for California. Two bills were signed into law on Thursday of last week to “help California be better prepared for future droughts and the effects of climate change.”

The mandatory water conservation standards will be permanent, according to their wording, and not just for use in times of crisis. To make a long story short, now that these bills are law, it’s illegal to take a shower and do a load of laundry in the same day because you’ll exceed your “ration.”

Here’s the wording of the new laws.

Senate Bill 606 establishes a “governing body” to oversee all water suppliers, both private and public and will require extensive paperwork from those utility companies.

Assembly Bill 1668 is where it gets personal.  This establishes limits on indoor water usage for every person in California and the amount allowed will decrease even further over the next 12 years.

The bill, until January 1, 2025, would establish 55 gallons per capita daily as the standard for indoor residential water use, beginning January 1, 2025, would establish the greater of 52.5 gallons per capita daily or a standard recommended by the department and the board as the standard for indoor residential water use, and beginning January 1, 2030, would establish the greater of 50 gallons per capita daily or a standard recommended by the department and the board as the standard for indoor residential water use. The bill would impose civil liability for a violation of an order or regulation issued pursuant to these provisions, as specified.

If you’re wondering how the government would know how much water your family is using, the utility providers will be obligated to rat you out or face massive fines. And they’re encouraged to spy in all sorts of creative ways. They “shall use satellite imagery, site visits, or other best available technology to develop an accurate estimate of landscaped areas.”

Some analysis

Now, if you’re wondering where I get my assertion that you can’t shower and do laundry on the same day, here’s some math:

  • An 8-minute shower uses about 17 gallons of water
  • A load of laundry uses about 40 gallons of water
  • A bathtub holds 80 to 100 gallons of water
  • A dishwasher uses 6 gallons of water

There are also standards to be established for outdoor use such as landscaping, caring for livestock, and gardening, but those numbers don’t seem to be available at this time. Maybe Californians just get to wait in suspense to see if their chickens are allowed to have water on the same day as their vegetables. Back when I lived in California, we were only “allowed” to water our gardens two times per week, which, in that heat, as you can imagine, didn’t lead to very productive gardens.

Farmers on a larger scale will have to jump through numerous hoops and create water management plans which must then be approved by the people in suits because obviously, they’ll know more about the needs of crops and livestock than the farmers will.

Oh, and don’t worry, rich people. There will be “provisions for swimming pools, spas, and other water features.” So you can still have your pretty fountains and pools while the rest of the peons take 2 showers a week. One might wonder if ‘variances” will apply to the wealthy for their landscaping needs.

“The State Water Resources Control Board, which will oversee local agencies’ progress, will also consider possible “variances” for some districts that need additional allowances due to specific local circumstances.” (source)

Both Brown and his most-likely successor, Gavin Newsom, want to spend $17 billion to build a tunnel that will bring water from resource-rich Northern California down to bone-dry Southern California. This means, even the parts of California that DO have water will be restricted in its use.

What if you don’t comply?

If you don’t plan to comply it’s going to be way cheaper to move. Here are the fines Californians will be looking at – and it’s not a typo – these fines are PER DAY.

(1) If the violation occurs in a critically dry year immediately preceded by two or more consecutive below normal, dry, or critically dry years or during a period for which the Governor has issued a proclamation of a state of emergency under the California Emergency Services Act (Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 8550) of Division 1 of Title 2 of the Government Code) based on drought conditions, ten thousand dollars ($10,000) for each day in which the violation occurs.
(2) For all violations other than those described in paragraph (1), one thousand dollars ($1,000) for each day in which the violation occurs.

It’s important to note that your usage is only tracked if you have municipal water. If you have a well, at this point, you will probably be okay. Back when I lived there, the idea of metering private wells and billing the owners for use had been floated around, but most people resisted and it wasn’t enforced. If you truck your water in, you can also use as much as you need to.

For years it was illegal to use greywater systems in California, despite the epic droughts. Those regulations have been loosened, however, compliance is still extremely onerous. (Get the details here.) And rainwater catchment is not only legal, it’s encouraged. In fact, there’s a ballot on the table that is a “measure to allow rainwater capture systems to be installed without counting as new construction for the purposes of reassessing property taxes.”

Don’t think this only affects California

Not only are Californians fleeing the state in droves, but there are other ways these restrictive laws can affect the rest of us directly.

  • These stringent measures set a dangerous precedent for the rest of the country.
  • There could be a shortage of food coming out of California because there isn’t enough water to produce it.
  • The food we do get from there will cost a lot more.

It’s important to pay attention to stuff like this and not shrug it off because “I don’t live in California.” In an economy such as ours, we’re all interlinked. A draconian law that gains a footing in one part of the country is much easier to pass in other parts.

    It is kinda funny that they are voting in these folks who are putting these restrictions on them. Anyways, just like the New Yorkers and Floridians, It will now be the Californians and wherever they wined up. If you don’t like where you live, just move but take all the things you don’t like with you, that way you can phuck up other peoples lives. I feel sorry for the people wherever they wined up.

    • TharSheBlows says:

      American are such wasteful pigs. I use about 15 gallons a week living off the grid. About 2 gallons to wash dishes by hand which I only wash dishes every 3rd day. A shower rinse down maybe 2-3 bottles (40-60 Oz Max) of water to shower every other day.

      Showers using municipal water is harmful to the body as it washes all your natural oils off your skin and drys it out, so you have to buy shit lotions to try and remoisten your skin. Hair conditiiners to rejuvinate your hair. I rarely ever now do I use any hand or skin lotions since off the grid. When people shower for no reason than a routine. It harms your body. I learned a lot by living off the grid. Granted if I work and get dirty, sure I clean off. Sometimes I just wash off with a hand cloth in the AM with hot water while I steam water for daily coffee. Homes should have a meter that only allows say a ration of 100 gallons per day, thats it max. If you run out, too bad and wait until the next day. People will smarten up quickly and prioritize how they use the water.

      The biggest water pigs out there are Golf Courses. Millions of gallons per week so the elite can make that 60 Foot birdie putt on 5000 Sq feet of green. They won’t conserve, run out if water and the masses will migrate to our areas and waste our water also. Count on that.

      When the water runs out, then what? Mass death. 3 days without water = death. Better get your rain catch and filter system in place. I just got a 12 Volt mini water pump out of a big RV that I will power with a 12V car battery charged with a trickle solar panel charging it to run the water pump forca shower. And it will pump up to 2.8 gallons per munute. There is a screw to reduce the flow desired. I am setting up a rain catch system and several 55 gal holding tanks, for an outside shower to offset and conserve my drinking water supply. Got to start thinking smart people and not so wasteful.

      Try a 2 minute shower. Rinse, then soap up and wash, then rinse. Thats it. Chlorine in the municipal water is what dries out your skin and hair. Everything about it, is harmful, wasteful and makes no sense. I am still waiting on my well system to be dug as I am in the permitting stage of getting the rest of my infrastructure built hete un FL. So get this figured out now, and your off grid back up shower systems in place before the grid collapses. Its not if, but when.

      Jerry Brown could deport the 15 Million Illegals wasting water. But hey, why do the right thing for taxpayers. Hes a Liberal Commie. Thats what they do, destroy whats right.

      • TharSheBlows says:

        The Masses are lured then trapped in the Urban Myth. Ahhh the convenience of city life.

        How much do you think your City property will be worth, when the Grids fail? Water grid, electric grid, sewer grids. Answer is Zero. A big fat Zero and you will abandon it all and become a refugee on the lamb in survival mode.

      • X7734-0845 says:

        American are such wasteful pigs.

        FU. We are not all wasteful.

        Speak only for yourself from here on out.

      • Oldiron says:

        Sorry for being a waste-full-pig how dare I work hard and spend my money on my bills and fun! I will go straight to jail and not collect 200$ will that make you FEEL better. Better idea try off-grid in the 21st century solar,wind,hydro,biomass,wood-gas,and bio-deisal.
        You talk of life like we all live on a commune but you and all the other greens forget that we will always be individuals that choose who,what,and where we go and how long we are there doing it. We are not the problem you and your nosey busy botty ways is what is stopping local people from solving local problems with big green solutions.

        • Azrael says:

          Funny how TSB says they should meter the water to 100 gallons per day and then it shuts off. That is a pretty Commie statement. The problem with your lifestyle TSB is that works where you live, but do you go to an office and work? I bet you smell. I know I would with the same habit. My co-workers would be pissed at me. Plus I live in Middle Tennessee. We get ten inches per year more rain than Seattle. We have plenty of water. If we run out of water then everyone else except maybe states bordering the Great Lakes, is totally screwed.

          • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

            Azrael, agreed. Where my BOL is located in north GA also gets a good amount of rainfall. The well is 600 ft. deep and one side of the property borders on a year-round creek with good water AND good fishing. Rain-catchment system with filters on the cabin and a 55-gal. barrel on each corner to catch rainwater. I have family that live on the same county road where the BOL is with similar setups. No water issues but we are also very conscious of how much water we use no matter what the purpose. Our wells are NOT metered. And TSB thinks wells should be metered and claims to be against communism? GMAFB!

            • TharSheBlows says:

              Wrong DepBH. I never said wells need to be regulated nor metered. Im talking about Urban city municipal water On the Grid. And to solve the watet shortage crisis. If you recall the rolling blackouts for electric grid usage? Same concept. Since you are an urban dweller in Memphis renting you are a slave slave slave to the grid system. You get what they give you. You control nothing.

      • FBI (f#*%ing bunch of idiots)... And traitors says:

        Lol if you are leaving comments on the internet you are not “off the grid”

          • TharSheBlows says:

            My satellite dish is powered by solar. Open your trap when you have a clue. Since I don’t see any of you living off the grid, F-You. When it all collapses you will be living off the grid as a refugee, while I am safe in my BOL Compound banging your girlfriend.

            • Azrael says:

              My BOL is, so no problem. (If I can get there, but I take my chances.) I have lived your lifestyle and I don’t care for it. I too have several 12VDC pumps and battery banks with solar panels. Large well pressure tank with check valve. Check. I even have a generator that can run on wood gas, propane, natural gas and gasoline if needed. This is if the sun doesn’t shine for an extended period of time, because it’s too busy raining, and I need to charge the batteries. 2000 gallon rainwater catchment system. Check. 2 KW of Solar. Check. 1000 gallon buried propane for stove. Check. Wood stove for heat in winter. Check. 5000 acres of forest to harvest firewood. Check. (This is the timber company’s, but I have 5 acres bordering it.)

      • CENTURION says:

        I totally agree with you.

        This is why ALL illegals must be DEPORTED NOW

        Anyone here on a visa? GET OUT NOW

        Green Card holders? GET OUT NOW

        WE don’t need these people (unless they are White) and we can reduce out water use, reduce crime, reduce rapes, reduce violence, if we deport these people NOW.

        So, yes, I agree with you.

      • JayJay says:

        Shower= rinse, turn OFF water, lather all of body/shampoo, turn ON water, rinse. Running water while lathering is soooo stupid and wasteful.
        I do this every time–I do not shower every day…sponge bath in sink.
        Hot summer= enough hot water in hose to shower..time it–you’ll be surprised. Lather, then rinse.

        I read in 10 years Cali will be only have illegals, welfare dependents, and politicians in that state.

      • No one cares about you or your stinky @$$.

      • Phoenix says:

        I agree. I have all the water I could want (AWESOME well!) But droughts in our area do happen, so we shower only when we feel it’s necessary and employ the “If it’s yellow, let it mellow; if it’s brown, flush it down” rule in our house. I always have multiple buckets and bowls out on the deck to collect rainwater for the dogs, chickens and plants. One year when the well got frighteningly low, I collected buckets of seawater for toilet-flushing and dishes/cleaning; showers during that time consisted of me going for a good swim in the ocean after work… I think it was about three weeks/a month without a so-called “proper shower”, but it was still super-cleansing and made me feel really healthy!

    • Beaumont says:

      I’m a sturdy person, whose shoes take a shine. You have wanted to use me for security related odds-and-ends and hazings. I would be the jerk in the Stanford experiment, if I wanted to wallow in my crapulence and never think, critically.

      Noone, from the Nazi or Communist party, voted for any bureaucrat, with the understanding that they would be placed on water restriction.

      These are false, moral dilemmas. People who believe in this are deluded.

      But, noone sincerely believed in onerous water restrictions, ever — no matter how cartoonish or fringe their political affiliation.

      If you were inhumane, if you wanted to make this into an abstract idea, like a Populus or Sim City videogame, any normal person would probably expect civil unrest to result from a Malthusian incident, like restricting ebt use or turning off the sprinklers.

      We heard the sounds of looting, as early as the 80’s, during a brief power outage, in what was then a diverse suburb. What do you think will happen in a “food desert” with hot asphalt.

      In Mexico, they had reportedly, just turned it off, with a flip of a lever or twist of a valve. All they had to do, whether they were state interests or some kind of whistleblowing vigilante, is turn it back on, again, fyi.

      That reeks of being baited. Will they always cover your ass, reliably, if you take that bait, or do they ever blame their own guys, legally.

    I really don’t care what those Hollyweird people do
    as most are liberal morons anyway. What does
    bother me is…..I just read that Las Vegas has just
    added another 600 houses to a city darned near
    drying up the water resources in the reservoirs feeding
    four states. There should be a moritorium on any new
    homes in the entire valley until they learn how to pipe
    ocean water to the reservoirs….SALT FREE.

    It is already like building a 1600 sq. ft…..3 bedroom 2 bath
    home and trying to fit 45 FAMILIES inside. What a nightmare!!

    Who would live that way?
    People who are totally dependent on government???

    While people who have lived there for 30 years are going to
    lose their home values due to greedy investors.

        FINALLY REAL JUSTICE PREVAILS. THE SUPREME COURT RULES IN FAVOR OF THE BAKER OVER THE FAGGGOT CAKE MAKING REQUEST. THE TIDE IS TURNING FOLKS. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

        SCOTUS Overturns Case Against Gay-Biased Baker

        BY Tyler Durden Zero Hedge

        The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding over religious reasons. In a landmark 7-2 ruling (Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor against), the Court found that the decision by Jack Philips of Masterpiece Cakeshop to refuse the same-sex couple’s request is protected under the first amendment.

        In 2012 gay fiancés David Mullins and Charlie Craig, asked Philips to create a custom cake for their wedding. Philips, who does not make cakes for Halloween, adult parties, anti-American messages or themes which he has religious objections to, refused.

        In a landmark 7-2 ruling (Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor against), the Court found that the decision by Jack Philips of Masterpiece Cakeshop to refuse the same-sex couple’s request is protected under the first amendment.

        Of course the 2 Liberal Commie Justices voted against the US Constitution, trying to rewrite the laws that protect Americans Liberties. Most all business have the right to refuse service to anyone.

        There is a Gun shop in Florida that is legally protected as they declare their gun shop a MUSLIM FEEE ZONE AND REFUSED SERVICE TO ANY MUSLIMS. As they have a right to sell any gun to any person they feel to be a threat to society.

        • TharSheBlows says:

          OOPS… I MEANT TO SAY, THE GUN SHOP OWNERS HAVE A RIGHT TO REFUSE TO SERVICE OR SELL A GUN TO ANYONE THEY CHOOSE, WHO MAY BE UNSAFE OR A THREAT TO SOCIETY.

  4. I think humans should be able to do what they want, whenever they want no matter the consequences./s

    You say there won’t be any water left in the aquafers for future generations?? Posh I say!!! I will shower in the morning, afternoon and night and water my desert grass twice a day, damn the future generations!!!

    Drought? Ahhhh, Nature’s just taking a rest, we all know Global Warming isn’t real, it’s just a ploy so librel people can tax us more.

    I mean really, the earth created oil in a 100 to 150 million year period, that’s basically sequestering 150,000,000 years worth of CO2 underground, and we burned a good portion of that oil, releasing that CO2, in around 150years, but no fucking way that can have any consequences. Wow, just fucking wow.

    The older generations have ensured that the human population will decline greatly, and very soon. I mean why are you on this site anyway??? You never have considered that it oil reserve depletion along with oil consumption that have resulted in you reading this post, right now??

    And don’t even say the word ‘abiotic’ or so help me I will crawl through this intertube thing and tear your heart out, and eat it still beating.

    • JustMe says:

      The myth of “fossil fuel”, was started by the CEO of Sinclair Oil, the oil company whose logo was a dinosaur, way back in the day.

      Oil, natural gas, and methane, are natural hydrocarbons, not dead animals and plants. Time to shed that lie, once and for all.

      As for CO2 release, you are partly correct, that burning hydrocarbons does release CO2. However, more CO2 is released naturally by Earth daily, than all the cars on the planet. One human-made form of CO2 release that is really polluting, is shipping. Bunker oil burned by ships is a very toxic, very real, very bad pollutant.

      I find it interesting that you want to blame a generation ahead of you, when what you see playing out around you, was set into motion over a century ago…

  10. This is leadership that is simply PISS POOR!

    The poorest leadership EVER!

    I expect MUCH more from a Jesuit-educated Governor!

    Here is their game plan: convince the governed that water is scarce through restrictions that mask their darkness; suppress desalinization and other technology; and refrain from sensible solutions to deliver water in needed regions.

    And one MORE thing: by NO means discuss how HAARP technology has been used to CREATE and MAINTAIN draught conditions, the way it was used to destroy 48% of California’s vegetable and fruit crop the other year.

    Don’t get me wrong, the fact is that a water crisis exists in California.

    The TRUTH is that it need not exist, that it was engineered/man-made, and that it no doubt is a beta test as continues to be Venezuela.

    When given facts, always seek the underlying Truth.

    When we all pursue Truth passionately it creates an unstoppable Tsunami that creates change and one way it does that is by how it exposes the darkness to the light.

    things like this are coming your way as govt figures it can levy a “fee” on you to increase it’s revenue in the “best interests of the environment”.

    if you have a big house or are identified as being in a rich area, you are going to have fines for excessive use on water and electricity and there will be no way to stop it once the democrats own the usa thru decades of unchecked immigration.

  16. Why not lower the water restriction to 49 gallons a day? It would give us another reason to call Californians “forty-niners”.

    This is like the situation in Spain where the north has a relative abundance of water and the south is the big water user. Johannesburg, South Africa has it written into its constitution a “right to free water”. Families get up to a certain amount free and after that it costs. They use meters which the homeowners tamper with. Basutoland has an abundance of water that it sells to South Africa. They tried to raise the price and South Africa sent jet fighters to get them to back down. China is building three major rivers to divert water from the Yangtze to the Yellow River where it is needed more. Oil and gas drive many of the wars in our world. Fresh water is joining it.

    There is a company called Zero Mass Water(ZMW) that produces a panel that incorporates solar panels and draws the humidity from the air. It can produce two to five liters a day depending on the humidity in the air. It costs $4,800 per panel. Too much for me. One option is a dehumidifier and a portable solar system. More trouble than the ZMW panel but it is an option. Hopefully, it won’t come to that. Too many hogs at the trough! Oink, oink!

    Here in Arkansas we quite often have more water than we want. I waste water. I have two wells one is 450 ft deep and is into the aquifer. The other is a old pounded well. water at 12 feet from a small spring. They Pounded another 200 feet nary another drop. But a 6 inch well has a gallon and a half water capacity for every foot. Its my water and I use it and waste it. pressure washer. I take a hot bath when im sore and tired. Wash laundry. water garden and livestock. let the grandkids play in the sprinkler. In the hot weather I will get up early and do stuff until its too hot. Then go in and shower. Always soak in the tub or shower before going to bed.

    Simple solution leave Calif like I did many years ago. At least move out to where you can use your own well and the hell with the tyrants how can you submit to this and still call yourself an American.

  19. Chunk says:

    “…ten thousand dollars ($10,000) for each day in which the violation occurs.
    (2) For all violations other than those described in paragraph (1), one thousand dollars ($1,000) for each day in which the violation occurs.”

    No doubt, this law only will apply to American citizens. Illegal aliens will be eligible to waste as much water as they want to, inside the sanctuary cities.

    and next Governor moombeam sends edict to Costco that henceforth toilet paper is to be sold by the square.

  21. old woman says:

    Is Nestle still sucking water out of CA to bottle and sell for 2 or 3 dollars a pop?

  22. Moses Strongbear says:

    You will always be able to tell when you are down wind from a Californian

    • Outside California now and miss the great California weather. We had a terrific wind storm which knocked down trees and power lines; and ironically, caused severe flooding in some areas, but not effecting us at home.

  23. Luke says:

    Where does he get the idea a bathtub holds 80 to 100 gallons? That would be a livestock watering tank.

  24. They wouldn’t have a water problem if they hadn’t taken in about 10 million illegals in California.

    • CENTURION says:

      TOTALLY CORRECT.

      Plus, look into the number of illegals who do not pay their water bill AND those who illegally hook up to water outlets.

      Illegals are criminals and need to be deported immediately.

  25. Sean says:

    I would suggest we all become a little more water conscious and keep plenty of stored drinking water, no matter where you live or how plentiful it is now.

  26. Sean says:

    I also suggest we not take things for granted, especially our personal security, and that there will be something to eat everyday. The attitude of gratitude is where it’s at.

  27. Okay, now that’s water they are regulating. That leaves air and sunshine that are the only things in California that aren’t taxed or regulated. The California government would welcome any suggestions on how this can be done.

  28. Welcome to Globalism, Control, control and more control

  29. The traveller says:

    Has anyone ever heard of a “submarine” shower? I’ll bet the Navy vets on this page have. That’s how I keep my shower consumption extremely low. Would work just fine if I lived in California.

  30. The traveller says:

    Well, the first post didn’t appear, so I’ll try it again. Has anyone heard of a “submarine” shower? I’ll bet the Navy vets on this page have. A very cheap, quick way to take a shower and not waste water. Ask any Navy vet. They’ve probably done it that way, and have adapted it to civilian use, for low water bills.

  31. Beaumont says:

    I am only asking, rhetorically. If you admit to this, you are probably incriminating yourself, where learned helplessness is the law. But, who has done anything to secure an independent water source.

    Noone except an epic geldscheißer (profligate) expects to entomb himself, like some Egpytian, with enough foil water pouches for all of eternity.

    (I have heard these people called, ‘bull elephant’ preppers.)

    Where does this actually come from? How can you make more of it?

  32. Jackbootedhugs says:

    1. Isn’t Kkkalifornia a costal state?!? There are ways to de-salinate sea water.
    2. Could someone tell me where all the water is going? I mean, the Earth is a closed system. We’re using the same water that has been used for thousands of years.
    3. If there’s no water where you are……move.

    Humans as well as animals need fresh air…
    clean and dry bedding….to prevent disease

    people produce 10-20 pounds of poop per
    week….not counting urine. Multiply this times
    52 weeks per year……. multiply that by the
    number of people in your county.
    How deep in s*** pile will we be in if the grid
    goes down?
    Farmers won’t worry… but how
    many apartment complexes will have no way
    to dispose of any waste. Disease will kill everyone.

    Add to that all the cattle…sheep….and hogs polluting the
    streams and rivers… But worst of all the DOG POOP.
    Tons of dog poop everywhere.
    Think that isn’t a discusting thought?
    Have you ever walked down a city sidewalk in Naples,
    Italy??? Stinks to heaven and back!!

  34. Only three percent of the water on the planet is fresh water;most is saline or brackish. Of that, much is frozen. Of the fresh water that isn’t frozen, much is in large remote lakes. Fresh water is becoming an issue that is leading to conflict.

    Find out who is spreading chem-trails.
    They are systematically destroying the
    productive desert which grows the nations
    food sources with aluminum particles that
    block and reflect the sun… causing rain clouds
    to disapate.NO RAIN!

    Look to the skies any day and see fhe crossed
    tic tac toe patterns. of chemicals.
    Are they controlling the weather? And/or obscuring visions
    of military equipment? UFO’s? Or deliberately poisoning
    our food??? Or ALL FOUR?????

    Jet trails evaporate in seconds…..normally……behind a plane.
    Chemtrails last for hours and go for several hundred miles.

    Saudi Arabia (and The United Arab Emirates) are Farming Arizona Land with NO LIMITS on how much water they can pump.

    Saudi Arabia Farming Arizona Land After Depleting Domestic Water Sources – 2015
    “Outside of Phoenix, in the scorching Arizona desert, sits a farm that Saudi Arabia’s largest dairy uses to make hay for cows back home.

    That dairy company, named Almarai, bought the farm last year and has planted thousands of acres of groundwater-guzzling alfalfa to make that hay. Saudi Arabia can’t grow its own hay anymore because those crops drained its own ancient aquifer.”
    “They got about 15 water wells when they purchased the property. Now, each one of those wells can pump about 1.5 billion gallons of water. It’s an incredible amount of water they’re going to be drawing up from that aquifer underground,”

    “The laws were put in place in the ’70s … But the laws were really designed for local or domestic farming. The idea that another country would come and essentially export your water via crops just wasn’t really around 30, 40 years ago. And so the laws that are in place are really inadequate for dealing with this new trend.

    “This is occurring in a part of Arizona that is unregulated for groundwater. So there are no limits on how much water they can pump.”

    “The United Arab Emirates doing something similar nearby
    “They are growing hay and shipping it to China.”

    Here in FL, if it freezes, the strawberry farmers start pumping a lot of water on their fields to insulate the strawberries so they won’t freeze. That excess pumping lowers the water table and creates surface ground sink hole collapses. Drain the table too far down and water pumps go dry causing the water pumps on wells to cavitate and burn up. Property owners sued the farmers and won for pumping too much water.

    • Mountain Trekker says:

      TSB since you mentioned it, I’ve wondered for years about why the Middle East hasn’t collapsed in one big sink hole since they have taken billions of barrels of oil out of the ground for years. And its consumed and never replaced like ground water is. Just a thought! Trekker Out

    KY MOM,
    You are right! Mussies are buying up everything they can …
    land, Las Vegas as they own a good portion of hotels + Casino’s….
    meat packing plants, food production and food
    plant operations, resort hotels, water rights, etc. everywhere
    in all the major cities.

    What is wrong with this country??? We are being eaten
    from the inside out!!! They are taking over our industries,
    our government, EVERYTHING!!

    They want to expand Las vegas by 640,000 acres for more
    of the Las Vegas strip + add more than 600 new homes.
    There is not enough water to support that kind of expansion.
    The reservoir up by Kingman is already down a hundred or so
    feet. Lake Mead as well.
    Does all of this takeover bother anyone else???

  40. Aidan says:

    This is definitely the beginning of martial law.
