Customers in San Juan Water District Asked To Halt Outdoor Watering

  

The Sacramento Bee reported Thursday that the San Juan Water District board of directors approved the move this week.

The district serves more than 265,000 people in the Sacramento suburbs, including the communities of Citrus Heights, Orangevale and Folsom.

Most of its water comes from Folsom Reservoir, which the newspaper says has shrunk perilously low amid one of the driest winters in California history.

District General Manager Shauna Lorance says the call for conservation is not mandatory, but it could become so next month if the area doesn't get rain soon. 

The district also is extending a request for a 20 percent cut in all water use that has been in place for months.
