Metropolitan Water District Vice Chair tells city committee to expect increasing reductions of water supplies
Metropolitan Water District of Southern California Vice Chair Cynthia Kurtz told a City committee she predicted the implementation of more mandatory water reductions by next year as the region faces the challenges of climate change and extended drought. Kurtz knows Pasadena’s water situation well. She served as Pasadena City Manager twice, most recently stepping down as Interim City Manager in August. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, the first three months of 2022 have seen record dry weather, and pushed nearly 94% of California into severe drought conditions.
