From the SF Public Utilities Commission:
"Following the fourth driest winter on record and concerned about possible first year drought conditions, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) today urged its 2.4 million San Francisco and Bay Area customers to curtail water consumption in the coming months to help avert possible mandatory rationing and deeper water consumption limits later this year. According to the latest measures, March precipitation at the Hetch Hetchy reservoir was just 27% of normal and the Sierra snowpack in the region is at just 46% of normal for the season."
And Colin Beavan was on the Colbert Report.
