Conserve water during drought

Tuesday, Aug. 5, 2014 — While the drought is not as noticeable locally, organizations are preparing to conserve water in various ways.

According to Lassen County Public Works Director Larry Millar, Lassen County has not seen many examples of the drought that is threatening California, but the State Water Board still issued a press release urging residents to limit the amount of water used outdoors.

According to the press release, an emergency regulation urging others to increase water conservation practices went into effect Tuesday, July 29.

“The new conservation regulation targets outdoor urban water use. In some areas of the state, 50 percent or more of daily water use is for lawns and outdoor landscaping,” read the release from the State Water Board.
