A house is reflected in a puddle of water from an irrigated front yard in San Diego. State regulators on Saturday, April 18, 2015 announced a revised plan to reduce water use in drought-stricken California that offers easier conservation targets for major cities, including Los Angeles, while demanding greater cutbacks from others. The new water reduction targets released by the State Water Resources Control Board responds to criticisms from cities that said earlier targets were unrealistic and unfair. Recognizing that some communities are farther along than others in conservation, the water board released a draft plan last week that requires varying levels of cutbacks for cities to ensure enough water if dry conditions persist.
