An arid climate and a rapidly growing population has left the state in
a drought crisis. Thanks to a series of thunderstorms and showers throughout

One of these restrictions is that a household can only water their lawn
on certain days of the week, for only a few minutes a day. Some Texas
environmental legislators are drawing inspiration from California’s
drought crisis to implement similar restrictions.
