LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two Los Angeles officials are calling for tougher restrictions on residential water customers in an effort to conserve during California’s persistent drought.

The Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1uOWo1V ) Councilmen Mike Bonin and Felipe Fuentes asked the Department of Water and Power on Tuesday to report on recommendations to add extra tiers of water use at a higher price.

They also plan to propose that the city halt all outdoor watering on land not used for parks or recreation.

The newspaper says under their proposal, residents would be given a water budget of a base amount that they could use daily to meet their needs - with prices going up as that amount rises.

The DWP currently has a two-tier system for residential customers.
