Remembering the 5 year drought in the early 1990s, well I did. I have allowed the grass in my backyard to die, two-thirds of my front yard is ivy and I can hand water the very small patch of lawn, meanwhile my front yard still looks good for the neighbors!!

Everyone can save water just take a shower every third day instead of every day.
