5. I don't think most people who actually live in places

like Phoenix or Las Vegas actually get it. They have lawns and back yard pools as if their water supply was bountiful and endless.

I live in Santa Fe, NM myself. The citizens of this city actually use about half the amount of water or people anywhere else in the country. Installing new backyard pools was forbidden in 1996. Very few people have lawns. I actually thought long and hard about moving to Santa Fe when I did so in 2008, because I was well aware of the problem of water in this part of the country. I was pleasantly surprised at how frugal people here are about water.
