The L.A. Times reported that in an unprecedented move, state officials announced on Friday January 31 that beginning this spring, the state reservoir will effectively be closed for business.
For the first time in its 54-year history, the State Water Project, a backbone of California’s water system, will provide no water to millions of urban residents or farmers this year because of the severe drought.
“This is the most serious drought we’ve faced in modern times,” Felicia Marcus, chairwoman of the State Water Resources Control Board, told the Associated Press. “We need to conserve what little we have to use later in the year, or even in future years.”
