Most of California's water consumption is from agriculture. A couple personal catchment systems would make little difference.

Its hard to understand until you've lived here how its like the Atacama desert for much of the year and then only modestly rainy for a couple months most years.

Many months are not "very little rainfall" but basically zero rainfall.
