On social media she was more than an Iranian immigrant who lived with her grandmother in southern California –she was an athlete, a fitness guru, a model, a poet, a vegan advocate, an animal rights warrior and a film-maker. She was glamorous and fought inequity. She was a star.  (The Guardian)
As a mere market analyst and OT amateur, I feel like a piece of sh** reading the curriculae of these successful online entrepreneurs.

I was ready to nominate her for a humanitarian-of-the-year award, then I remembered that she just killed a bunch of people

Another bloody-thirsty vegan! There's something lacking in the vegan diet that makes them want to kill. Methinks a nice juicy steak would sooth their savage impulses.

a question to californians:
is this story accurate?
Now It’s Against the Law in California to Shower and Do Laundry on the Same Day
and if so, how would the fines be levied?
is it done by monitoring every single day or do they use an average over some period?

The simple answer is “no”, as about five seconds with Google would have told you.

The simple answer is “no”, as about five seconds with Google would have told you.
reading the legislation tells me that it seems to be a half-truth not a "no" because there are fines but the fines apply to the supplier not the householder
There's a paragraph (paragraph (a)) omitted in the article
1846.5. (a) An urban retail water supplier who commits any of the violations identified in subdivision (b) may be liable in an amount not to exceed the following, as applicable:
(1) If the violation occurs in a critically dry year immediately preceded by two or more consecutive below normal, dry, or critically dry years or during a period for which the Governor has issued a proclamation of a state of emergency under the California Emergency Services Act (Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 8550) of Division 1 of Title 2 of the Government Code) based on drought conditions, ten thousand dollars ($10,000) for each day in which the violation occurs.
So it seems that the answer is that it's not against the law in California for one person to shower and so laundry on the same day, but it is against the law in California for everyone in the water district (or whatever you call it) to shower and so laundry on the same day, because that would trigger a fine against the supplier for exceeding the limits

The law says nothing about specific activities or combinations of activities. It only specifies a daily limit of so many gallons per person per day (the limit starts at 55 gal/person/day). And at the water supplier level, that would be the aggregate usage so the limit is actually for the per-person average rather than a prohibition that no one person can take a long shower and then go start the laundry.

Moreover, that website assumes people take longish showers and have a very wasteful showerhead.

P.S. I just checked our water bill. My wife and I use an average of only 33 gal/person/day despite taking showers with a old showerhead, flushing older inefficient toilets, doing laundry, washing dishes, etc.
