Water restrictions in Geelong

We are on Stage One water restrictions in Geelong. That means garden watering only on alternate days, hand watering from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. at night. Automatic only midnight to 4 a.m. and who's going to get up all night! Hand-washing of cars. No washing of cement paths. We are getting a little rain at nights but no downpours to fill the reservoirs and in the catchment area.
I liked the pic of a tap in Papua New Guinea, a water project funded from our Australian Uniting Church. I like the leaf bathroom/or is a toilet behind the tap? At one time we had charming bathrooms with woven bamboo walls and lots of sunlight.
