I am a big fan of having as many solutions in the toolbox as possible, including anything that produces more water, but the reality is that we must live within our current supplies short of buying more rights to Russian River water, piping in water from the East Bay or desalination. So how do we do that? Collectively, we waste a lot of water in our homes, mostly in our landscapes. We often fail to fix a leak, rarely check out irrigation systems for problems and overwater most of our plants.
