Gov. Jerry Brown's executive order requires cities and towns to continue monthly reporting of water use
Gov. Jerry Brown ordered California to permanently follow some conservation measures taken during the state's drought.
Brown's order on Monday came as water officials considering whether to ease a 20 percent conservation order for cities and towns. The order does not set a mandatory percentage for saving water.
Any changes proposed on Monday would likely go before the State Water Resources Control Board on May 18.

Will he publicaly declare the California Business Drought Environment too?
I remember in the Chaplin movie, “The Great Dictator”, food shortages were ordered.
Why doesn’t California just say it identifies as Fully Hydrated?
My park,Bidwell Park in Chico, CA, one of the largest US parks, has had several trees fall down from the ground being over-saturated. Just Brown denying the obvious for his ruthless intentions of controlling people.
The greenies got a chance to grab power and influence. Ain’t gonna give it up.
If Californians didn’t like it, they’d vote him out.
Instead, they voted him in. Meh.
Last I knew public water supplies have had to report their monthly water usage since 1976.
I dont see permanence in the actions of legislative and executive branches of government, state or federal. The most permanent thing that state and federal governments can do is amend their respective constitutions. And PC interpretations of constitutions aside, constitutions are permanent to the extent that they are difficult to change.
If it’s permanent, it’s not a drought.
N.B.: Socialists want everything of value in shortage, so they can ration it. The shortage does not have to be real, or even artificially created, it can be entirely propaganda. This is because socialists only care about control, not about the thing-in-itself. They create polluted devastation, full of anguish, misery and poverty, and they are happy to do so as long as they rule. And they then say that there are no problems in this disaster. For they truly do not care about the suffering of others.
They truly believe, in the words of Satan, in Paradise Lost:
Here we may reign secure, and in my choyce
To reign is worth ambition though in Hell:
Better to reign in Hell, then serve in Heav’n.
Meanwhile the California enviro-idiots continue to pour billions of gallons of fresh water into the ocean to “save” the snail darter.
It would sure suck in Cali if a big earthquake busted loose, and took out the power grid, including the EBT system, on top of busted water mains and burning neighborhoods.
Socially speaking, that could get real ugly fast, as in, “There is not enough clean drinking water, sorry.”
Nothing is more permanent than a “temporary” government program.
Overall nearly 90 percent of the state remains in drought.
The easing drought has prompted many water districts to say they want to set their own conservation targets. Others say the state should completely drop the drought emergency. _________________________________________________________- There ya go - the issue hi-lighted - why no comments on this? The east side of the Cascades up here has more water then I have seen in over thirty years - but yet we are in a drought emergency???
