If you are a resident of California, then you have probably heard all the buzz surrounding the latest round of water cutbacks around the state. Two weeks ago, with emergency drought conditions persisting throughout California over the last four years at record-breaking levels, the State Water Resources Control Board adopted an emergency regulation requiring an immediate 25 percent reduction in overall potable urban water use statewide in accordance with Gov. Jerry Brown’s April 1 Executive Order. When you travel the state, you will see the dry, parched landscapes and deteriorating water sources that have the state pushing water conservation like never before.
The new regulations, as mentioned in a recent article by the Sacramento Bee, has ten of the Sacramento area’s 23 large water districts must cut usage by 36 percent during the next nine months compared to 2013. All but two must cut usage by 28 percent. That is a lot of water and many residents are fearful that it could cost jobs and businesses and residents will have a hard time dealing with the cutbacks. A state of emergency was also declared by Governor Brown in January and has spoken about the topic of water shortages several times.
