California governor orders mandatory water restrictions

Gov. Jerry Brown, center, talks Mark Cowin, left, Director of the California Department of Water Resources and Frank Gehrke, chief of the California Cooperative Snow Surveys Program for the DWR, on a snow barren meadow where the snow survey is held near Echo Summit, Calif., Wednesday, April 1, 2015. Gehrke said this was the first time since he has been conducting the survey that he found no snow at this location at this time of the year. Brown and Cowin attended this snow survey to see the conditions for themselves and later Brown announced that he signed an executive order requiring the state water board to implement measures in cities and towns to cut water usage by 25 percent compared with 2013 levels.
