METROPOLITAN GENERAL MANAGER ISSUES STATEMENT ON PROPOSED STATEWIDE OUTDOOR WATER RESTRICTIONS

by Terry Miller
share with

Jeffrey Kightlinger, general manager of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California,
issues the following statement on proposed outdoor water restrictions approved Tuesday by the
State Water Resources Control Board:
“Asking all urban areas to implement their own outdoor water restrictions is a tailored,
effective next step in managing this drought. Curbing outdoor water use can create the largest
savings, particularly during the hot summer months. This is the right next step at the right time.
“The state board proposal respects the different local approaches to conservation
management and reflects the seriousness of a drought that has yet to end. Metropolitan’s water
reserves are adequate for the coming months, but a continued drought will prompt even greater
restrictions.”
