I mentioned a few weeks ago I had lived in drought-ridden California back in the late 90's and their slogan was "Don't Be A Water Hog" conserve water. It was so bad there that people couldn't water their lawns or their cars. They asked people to take five-minute showers and to turn off the water while they were brushing their teeth.
When this water-saving campaign was going on it was pretty scary knowing that you could actually run out of the water.
