DHS has a vested interest in overseeing security at reservoirs/water supply facilities, so things that affect them operationally are of interest, as are operational changes in response to external factors.

Nothing to see here, citizen. I'm as concerned about "Big Brother" as anyone else, but this is honestly the absolute least of anyone's concern in this respect.

To really conserve, some other options are available.

1. If its brown flush it down - ifits pee let it be.
2. Skip washing after going - if your aim is that far off you dont deserve to be out in public.
3. Save it and go at work.
4. Crank upthe temp on your hot water heater to just below boiling - you will use less or scald youself to death - either way you will save water.
5. Pee outside - the ground needs it.
6. If the diaper is only wet, take it outside and wring it out over the lawn or garden.
7. If you gotta honk up a lugee - not on pavement - find a lawn or garden.
8 Best of all - dont shower or bathe alone.

Come on folks - there must be some other great ideas out there.

seriously, use paper plates for a while. take a quicky shower, limit your wash days and combine your wash in one large one. drink bottled water or even cook with bottled water, its cheap enough. dont forget, filling the bathtub uses too much water, the quick shower is the best thing.if you need to water your plants, use bottled water. i dont think that the condensed water from your dehumidifier would hurt the plants or grass if you need to water.

Fire fighters AKA Homeland Security if thier is no water how are they going to decontaminate you? Water is key to your safety.
