(Newser) – A California town is threatening to cut off water to any customer who fails to stick to a mandated 150-gallon-a-day ration, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. "People don't understand how bad this is going to get," said an official from the oceanside town of Bolinas, who fears the community could run out of water by spring. Other towns have demanded water rationing, but no other law in the drought-stricken state threatens to disconnect water service.
