Re Drought: Walking around my neighborhood, folks are taking this dry "rainy" season seriously. Many lawns are browning as they should be considering that the latest snowpack in the Sierra measures just 12 percent normal.
Way to go for the cities of Sacramento and Folsom who have instituted mandatory 20 percent cutbacks in customers' water use. Other local agencies and governments should follow their lead.
Instead of quietly asking their customers to reduce water use, all water agencies and local governments need to start mandatory reductions and educate their water users about the condition of their water supply.
