Further water restrictions may be put into effect

<div class="StoryBlock">
As this drought drags on, water officials are considering expanding mandatory outdoor water restrictions on homeowners. <br /><br />The state water resources control board appears ready to extend existing rules imposed last summer to boost water supplies. That would mean we still won’t be able to wash cars with hoses that don’t shut off and must limit watering their lawns. <br /><br />Water wasters could face fines up to $500 a day and that’s not all, here’s some other possible rules that are under consideration, a ban on running outdoor water fountains and prohibiting lawn watering during cold and rainy weather, or requiring restaurants to only serve water on request, and telling hotels not to automatically provide guests with fresh towels and sheets every day. <br /><br />These aren’t new ideas, it’s the law in some cities already.<br /><br /></div>
