Water restrictions lead to big usage cuts in Tampa Bay area

Published April 14, 2009 - St. Petersburg Times
During the first week of the region's tightest-ever water restrictions, the Tampa Bay area cut back its water use by about 126 million gallons.

In Tampa, which relies largely on the Hillsborough River for water, the savings was more than 51 million gallons for the week of April 3-9, compared with the seven previous days.

How will this play out with residents like the repercussions? I was reading an article that stated restrictions like no car wash after a time, no bird baths, no lawn watering and I bumped into a solution for car wash. Has anyone ever head of a waterless car wash?
