California water agencies told state regulators yesterday (Wednesday) that rules requiring water conservation should end. As Capital Public Radio's Amy Quinton reports, regulators have proposed extending them at least until May.
The first manual snow survey of the season yesterday (Tuesday) found the amount of water in California's Sierra Nevada snowpack below average. As Capital Public Radio's Amy Quinton reports, the snowpack supplies about a third of the state's water needs.
California state agencies have released a draft plan for long-term water conservation across the state. The water-saving practices we thought were temporary during the worst of the drought may now be made permanent, although different regions of the state may have different conservation mandates. We have details on the draft plan from KVCR's Rebekah Stone.
