More water-saving suggestions

Just saw story on CBS on your water problem.

Would take a lot of planning but would seem that you could have the ability (in a home, for example) to have the ability to switch between a treated salt water (filtered and treated with disinfectant) supply and fresh.

For example, one could when bathing wash (soap) in salt water and then rinse in fresh. Same with a dishwasher (dishes should be salt-safe).

Not sure about washing clothes, but may work. I’ve never heard of this being done, but in an extreme case such as yours it may be worth thinking about. Treated salt water taps could have unmistakable indicators.
