How do you ration indoor city water???

Well, we're about to find out. We were just informed tonight, that because of the drought, Monroe is in immediate need for changes. We are down to 100 days of water in our county and our water bill is automatically raised by 15%. Not only that, but if we go over the allotted amount per family, which is 6 gallons, we will be getting charged 5 times the normal sum. Looks like we'll be "saving the flushes" again=)

We got a rain barrel last year that has helped us alot with outdoor watering. Only, you have to have rain for it to work. ;)
You could always order a port a john and put it in your front yard and then get a wash board for your clothes.... :)
