Mandatory water restrictions put in place in California

posted on

Because of the current drought conditions in California, Governor Jerry Brown announced this week water restrictions for the state.

According to a USA Today article, “Among the measures Brown will have the California Water Resources Control Board oversee: water reduction on the part of golf courses, cemeteries and other large landscaped spaces; the replacement of 50 million square feet of lawn statewide with drought-tolerant landscaping; a rebate program to encourage the purchase of water-saving appliances; and requiring new homes to use drip irrigation.”

We have a drought fact page available that includes helpful information on defining what drought is, measuring and monitoring it and coping with it.
