Water Crisis: Will #California Soon Close Its Golf Courses?

California regulators urge 35 percent reduction in water use for some areas

Future Farmland?

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — In an aggressive push to reduce water usage statewide, California regulators are proposing that the biggest urban water users cut consumption by as much as 35 percent over the next year.
The State Water Resources Control Board's plan, unveiled Tuesday, would place the heaviest conservation burden on cities and towns with the highest rates of per-capita water consumption, which would include small rural communities as well as affluent enclaves like Newport Beach and Beverly Hills.
Cities that have the lowest per-capita water use — including East Los Angeles, Santa Cruz and Seal Beach — would be required to cut just 10 percent.
Agencies that don't comply with the rules could face fines of up to $10,000 a day. Read More.
