LA May Stop Water Cuts

LA May Stop Water CutsLA May Stop Water Cuts

The city of Los Angeles in the US state of California has enough water to make it through three more years of drought without continuing state-mandated water cuts, according to the LA Department of Water and Power “stress test”, according to 89.3 KPCC. The department claims that in 2017, its water supply will match its demand and therefore, it no longer needs to continue with its state-mandated conservation target of 14%. Instead, its state requirement will be zero. DWP is one of a number of area water agencies like Long Beach and the Coachella Valley Water District that “zeroed out” on their stress, saying they have enough supply to get through three more dry years.
