VISTA, Calif. — Even though nine U.S. cities are currently in "exceptional drought" situations, many people are not prepared to react to emergency water situations, according to a press release.

Klaus Reichardt, CEO and founder of Waterless Co., which makes no-water urinal systems, has created an outline of what happens in a water emergency which is detailed in the release.

Things to expect in a water emergency include: A declaration by the state's governor, enforced water use restrictions, bans on landscape irrigation and non-commercial carwashing, closed public restrooms, etc., according to the release.

"One good thing that often happens in a water emergency is [that] we learn not only how to conserve water, but also [to] use if far more efficiently," said Reichardt.
