Facing historic drought, California governor issues statewide water restrictions

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The executive order calls on better enforcement to conserve water and investment in technologies for greater drought resistance.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California Gov. Jerry Brown has issued an executive order in response to record drought conditions across the state, according to a press release.

The actions will increase enforcement of saving water, streamline the state’s drought response and make the state more drought resilient by investing in new technologies, noted the release.

“Today we are standing on dry grass where there should be five feet of snow. This historic drought demands unprecedented action,” said Brown in the release. “Therefore, I’m issuing an executive order mandating substantial water reductions across our state. As Californians, we must pull together and save water in every way possible.”

Local water agencies will adjust rate structures to discourage water waste, reported the release. Standards for toilets, faucets and residential communities’ outdoor landscaping will also be updated and enforced.

The decision-making process regarding water infrastructure projects will also be streamlined under the order, shared the release.
