Gov. Jerry Brown ordered mandatory water use reduction in the state of California for the first time in the state's history. He has ordered the State Water Resources Control Board to restrict water by 25%. This restriction will affect homeowners, who will have to reduce the watering of their gardens and lawns, which are two of the primary sources of water use in the state. Farmers on the other hand will not be affected.

Mr. Brown even went so far as to say that "The idea of your nice little green lawn getting watered every day, those days are past." Further, officials say that they are prepared to enforce the new laws if necessary with fines, etc. The water agencies have been instructed to raise rates of heavy water users and to reward water conservers. The chairwoman of the State Water Resources Control Board said that most of the restrictions will target outdoor uses of water such as watering lawns and gardens.

A good option for those who wish to keep their lush green lawn and still abide by the new water restrictions is to install a synthetic grass lawn. New synthetic grass technologies look just as good as natural grass and are just as functional. Synthetic grass will reduce water usage drastically, and eliminate expensive use of other resources on lawn maintenance. Yes, Mr. Brown is correct, the days of watering your lawn every day are gone; but, thanks to synthetic grass, the days of having a nice green lawn are here to stay.

Water Laws In California, Police, Illegal, irrigation, sprinkler

There are no signs of severe drought in California this year, but the state legislators continue to move down the road of water wasting mindset prevention. As a reminder to those residents and businesses who have gotten a little lazy and are back to using as much water as before the drought, water legislations are passing on through eight phases of the mandatory water conservation program. It's Murphy's law: "Just when you think things cannot get any worse, they will." But there is also some good news for Californians. Minimum wage is going up to $11-$12 per hour depending on company size. Women are getting more protection. Illegal businesses of the past are making into respected taxpayers.

Christopher Hain, the research scientist of NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, leads a specializes project aimed to predict drought across North America from satellites. In times, when a climate change poses a threat to agriculture, any new way to catch on the drought conditions at early stages sounds just right.

America loves green, lush lawns. Outdoor lifestyle is threatened by severe drought and a climate change. Lawns dry out. Dried earth.

The state of Califonia is currently in its fifth year of severe drought. Despite Governor Brown's declaration of a state drought emergency in 2014, Californias fell short of the mandated water conservation target.
