Governor Jerry Brown extends ‘California water-saving’ measures in drought

California Governor Jerry Brown has extended his executive order requiring residents to conserve water as the state readies for a fifth year of drought.

A new executive order issued by Brown calls for restrictions on water use in urban areas to continue until the end of October 2016 if drought conditions continue into January of next year. The governor had previously ordered a 25% cut in urban water use that ended in February.

The El Niño climate phenomenon is expected to bring torrential rainfall to parts of the state but could leave many areas still impacted by drought conditions. State officials are also concerned that much of the state’s water supply comes from the north where El Niño is not expected to cause significant precipitation.

Researchers believe that the years-long drought in California is the worst the region has seen in centuries.

    1. is he using less water? how about Diane Finestiene? Barbara Boxer? now, here is a suggestion. you have this huge ocean , why not get water there, and purify it? you can stop sending $ to sanctuary cities, cut welfare for illegals who are able to work. there is you $ to purify the water. does anyone agree? I am not a scientist, but I am sure you can somehow get the stuff out of the ocean that would make the water drinkable, and able to fill reservoirs
