Category: Investment, Water

LOS ANGELES - May 10, 2016 ( Jeffrey Kightlinger, general manager of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, issues the following statement on Gov. Jerry Brown's Drought Executive Order:

"Southern California's long-term water plan already assumes conservation achievements above and beyond those targeted by state legislation for 2020. Gov. Brown's executive order is completely consistent with conservation objectives for Southern California."

"While this relatively normal rain season in Northern California is a welcome change from last year's historically low snowpack, Southern California remains in drought conditions. Metropolitan fully supports the governor's Water Action plan and making conservation a way of life for California each and every year."

The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California is a state-established cooperative of 26 cities and water agencies serving nearly 19 million people in six counties. The district imports water from the Colorado River and Northern California to supplement local supplies, and helps its members to develop increased water conservation, recycling, storage and other resource-management programs.
