From The San Diego Union Tribune:
“Some thirsty California cities and farms will receive a sip of water — not nearly enough to solve drought-induced woes but better than the nothing they had been expecting.
The state Department of Water Resources and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation jointly announced Friday they would turn the taps on slightly to some key customers, including the Metropolitan Water District that supplies much of the San Diego region.
The state said it will send 5 percent, compared to the zero percent earlier.
The federal Bureau of Reclamation will increase its deliveries to farmers north of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to 75 percent of normal compared to 40 percent.”
