From the Association of California Water Agencies:
“With record-low water deliveries projected from the Los
Angeles Aqueduct, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power
(LADWP) is reminding its customers to conserve water indoors
and outdoors this summer.
The dry winter, below average rainfall and snowpack, and
reduced supply from the State Water project has created a
“perfect storm” for L.A. residents, said James B.
Nearly 20,000 acres of remote forest once targeted for vineyard
development in remote northwest Sonoma County will be set aside
as timberland and wildlife habitat under a landmark conservation
deal that closed Friday.
The property commonly called Preservation Ranch near the
town of Annapolis is now owned by The Conservation Fund, a
national group that specializes in forest protection.
