Southland survives water ‘stress test’
SOUTHLAND – (INT) – Southern Californians are being praised for their water conservation during the ongoing drought. As a result, there are sufficient water supplies to get through the next three years.
The Metropolitan Water District’s ‘stress test’ means it will not be forced into mandatory conservation.
The MWD, the Southland’s primary water wholesaler, has invested nearly $1 billion over the past 25 years to develop drought-resilient local supplies, increase water conservation and reduce per capita water use.
It is focused on long-term water conservation and a more sustainable lifestyle rather than water rationing as a solution in dry years.
