Paso Robles is the latest city to ask residents to conserve water by reducing their consumption by 40 gallons a day. Without the conservation, the city may drop to levels that may make it difficult to fight fires.
It wasn’t that long ago that we had a really wet winter but it only took one year of low rainfall to create concerns in multiple Central Coast cities already. I hesitate to think what will happen if we a multi-year drought. Can we really support any more building if we can’t even keep safe levels of water reserves to handle a drought??
