  • Right to water grass restricted solely to residents who have realistic chance of winning subdivision’s Best-Kept Lawn title
  • Disneyland will no longer provide fire hoses for visitors to turn on costumed characters
  • One-child policy
  • Surgeons across state ordered to wash hands half as often
  • Statewide consumer rebate program to replace old water with more water-efficient water
  • Olivia Jessup of Sacramento asked to sacrifice a few hydrangeas
  • Educational campaign to warn citizens against past 100 years of wasteful water policy
