In USA, California Governor Gavin Newsom has warned of potential mandatory water cuts as the most populous US state continues to fight a worsening drought.
The governor’s office said in a statement that during a meeting today with the state’s major urban water agencies, the Governor implored the firms to take more aggressive actions to conserve water and combat the drought, which entered its third year.
According to media reports, Water use in cities and towns increased by nearly 19% in March, an especially warm and dry month. Compared with a 2020 baseline, statewide cumulative water savings since July have amounted to just 3.7%.
The record low water levels and above-average temperatures continue to stoke fears ahead of this year’s wildfire season.
The severe drought, now in its third year in California, is one of the most extreme on record and has been worsened by hotter temperatures with global warming.
