SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KOVR / CBS Newspath) — There will soon be more focus on flushes and scrutiny over showers with a new law signed in by the governor.
California is now the first state in the nation to enact tough new water-efficiency standards. The controversial rules limit how many gallons a person can use inside their home per day.
In 2022, the new indoor water standard will be 55 gallons per person, per day. by 2030, it will fall to 50 gallons.
An 8-minute shower uses about 17 gallons of water, a load of laundry up to 40, and a bathtub can hold 80 to 100 gallons of water.

This should be VERY interesting. Approximately 30% of Kalifornia’s population is unlawful migrants, who only pay consumption (sales) tax. The new standard will be 55 gallons per person per residence. If the residence is supposed to hold four people, the new standard will be 220 gallons per day. Since the migrants live approximately 20 per residence, will the new standard be 220 gallons per residence, or 1100 gallons per residence (20*55 gallons)?
Short of metering outside usage, how is the state going to monitor “inside” usage?
