State Water Resources Control Board Formally Adopts Strict Water Restrictions

Californians are about to feel the severity of the drought more acutely later this month when the severe water restrictions adopted yesterday by the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) go into effect. Unanimously adopted by the water board on a 5-0 vote, the emergency regulations will reduce urban water usage statewide by 25 percent. These temporary regulations, which will remain in effect for 270 days, implement the urban water conservation called for in Gov. Jerry Brown’s April 1 Executive Order. The Office of Administrative Law will next review and approve the regulations.
