In this photo taken Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014, Forrest Clark, 25, loads five gallon bottles of water, purchased at a local store, into his car in Willits, Calif.  With local reservoirs holding less than a 100-day supply of water, city leaders have banned lawn watering, car washing and mandated all residents to cut water use. Clark, who said he doesn't like the taste of the local water, buys 10-15 gallons of bottled water a week to help boost the family water supply.
