California water regulators are again ordering some senior water rights holders to stop diverting water from rivers because of the drought.
The State Water Resources Control board has cutback San Francisco's rights to water in the Tuolumne River. Some water is diverted from that river to fill Hetch Hetchy Reservoir.
The board has also ordered cutbacks for those with rights dating back to 1858 on the Merced River and those with pre-1914 rights on the upper San Joaquin River.
