Then it must be a done deal. It was in the manager's report in the paper that came today. There is also a news article about it in the same newspaper that says even number addresses can water on Sundays and Thursdays, and odd number addresses can water on Saturdays and Wednesdays. It also says "irrigation of landscaped areas and building foundations is permitted at any time if it is by means of a hand-held hose, a bucket, or by drip irrigation or soaker hose systems. Restrictions will also cover washing of vehicles. Those washing cars, boats, trailers and other vehicles will be required to use either a hand-held bucket or a hand-held hose equipped with a positive shutoff nozzle for quick rinses." Kevin is quoted, "I don't think these restrictions will be permanent."
Next question, who enforces it?

What is "excessive water use"? How is it calculated?

Got my new toilet system working. I probably wasted more water adjusting it and figuring it out than it will save, but I think it's working right now.
