Amid California's worst drought on record, increasingly strict water use restrictions are being imposed on residents in the greater Los Angeles area. I spent two days on assignment for the Wall Street Journal at the end of May 2022 with writer Jim Carlton, accompanying so-called "water cops" as they made their rounds, looking for signs of water misuse and educating residents about the new rules. The strictest area, the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District, has reduced allowed outdoor watering to one day a week, for a maximum of eight minutes. Violators are warned, then face increasing penalties, though the officials monitoring use emphasize that they try to work with customers directly to educate and help them reduce water waste.
