A view of Folsom Lake on Thursday shows the reservoir’s historic low for December; below 200,000 acre-feet. About 500,000 people in Folsom, Fair Oaks, Roseville and other communities depend on the lake’s stored water. Folsom’s water conservation order on Monday directs all residents and businesses to reduce their water consumption by 20 percent.
