Wells Are Drying Up in Mendocino, California

Wells in the historic tourist town of Mendocino, California, are drying up amid a devastating drought.

One business, the Alegria Inn, has been trucking in water at a rate of $600 for 3,500 gallons, which lasts about a week. Towns on the coast are beginning to shut down the sale of water by truck, leaving an option to bring in more water by train.

In order to conserve, they douse flowers with dirty dish water and have replaced sheets with something more lightweight to fit more laundry into a single load.

Café Beaujolais up the street is closed three nights a week to conserve water.

Other businesses have bathrooms closed in favor of port-a-potties.
