Water districts back shift in conservation plan

Officials with water districts throughout drought-stricken California say they support a proposed move to put the agencies in control of conservation after a wet winter eased conditions in some parts of the state.

The State Water Resources Control Board is meeting Wednesday in Sacramento to decide whether it will drop conservation measures now required statewide.

The proposal being considered would allow districts to determine how much water their residential and business customers must save in light of local supply and demand.

Shannon Catullo of the South Tahoe Public Utility District and other officials told the board they favor the plan.
