Calif. Gov. Cuts Back on Bathing, Drinking Water Amid Drought Crisis

California Gov. Jerry Brown said he is doing his part by cutting back on showering and drinking water as the state continues to battle extreme drought.

“I didn’t take a shower this morning,” the 77-year-old Democrat told reporters Friday after a meeting with Silicon Valley mayors in San Jose, Bloomberg reported. “We’ve installed a low-flow system and we’re using it quite carefully and quite sparingly.”

Mr. Brown said he continues drinking coffee and wine but has reduced his water consumption.
