Susan Rogers

teacher, Davis:

“I live in an apartment, so I don’t have any watering to do. I don’t use much water. So it will probably only affect the owner of the property.”

Mario Meneses

store clerk, Davis:

“Taking shorter showers. That’s about all I can do. I don’t have a lawn to worry about.”

Jessie Kathan

student, Davis:

“Planting more native plants in my garden, because native plants are more drought-tolerant and need less water.”

Bryan Lairmore

student, Davis:

“I will be taking shorter showers and watering my lawn less.”

Schorré Oldham

artist, Davis:

“Just the basics, like turning off the water when I’m washing dishes and brushing my teeth.”

Joel Ramirez

student, Davis:

“Shorter showers. That’s pretty much the only way. Make sure I don’t have leaky faucets.”
