California is in a serious water crisis, but this is also a long-term problem. We need to start implementing policies to change how we conserve and consume water. That's why I introduced legislation at the Board of Supervisors to to require onsite water reuse systems – for example, graywater and storm water recapture systems – in new developments and to push city departments to use non-potable water for all cleaning and irrigation of public spaces within the next 5 years. This is an important step towards no longer using our precious drinking water for flushing toilets.
