One goal found within the executive order is for California to reduce its water consumption by 25%. Many of the restrictions will call upon local water suppliers to implement reduction strategies ; from rate adjustments for heavy users to fines for those who fail to comply. Cemeteries and golf courses have been informed that they must renovate their watering systems so that they use as little potable water as necessary.
