CNN: Extreme drought in California

Southern Californians were told at the end of April 2022 to reduce outdoor watering in an “unprecedented” order amid a historic drought (link). Officials are specifically demanding businesses and residents in parts of Los Angeles, Ventura, and San Bernardino counties cut outdoor watering to one day a week because they “don't have enough water to meet normal demands for the 6 million people living in the State Water Project dependent areas," a spokesman for the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California said. Metropolitan is calling on residents in its region to cut their water consumption by 35% to avoid a full ban on watering later in the summer. The move comes as California faces persistent climate crisis-fueled dry conditions (link) that have led to major water shortages, despite record snow in early winter.
