We don't today, but we have in times past. For several years water was "rationed" in this area (ie, we were limited to a percentage of last year's usage each month, and penalized with stiff rate charges for over usage). During that period we relied on rainwater (rainbarrels), and on gray water, to maintain the garden and orchard (about a half acre).

And we survived, as did our teenagers (!!)
