  17%
The situation is very concerning to me. I started watching my water use weeks ago when it was obvious we were headed for a drought.

  29%
Iíll use as much water as I can pump out of the ground or pay the city for and itís nobody elseís business what I do.

  16%
Iím trying. But itís hard in the summer not to water the lawn or garden.

  38%
Iíve cut back now that Iíve learned about the warning and I wish other people would take this more seriously. Water is everyoneís resource.
