In hearings this week, the State Water Resources Control Board (Board) considered a proposed resolution regarding drought-related emergency regulations for curtailment of water diversions.  The authority to adopt emergency measures was made possible through Governor Jerry Brown’s emergency drought declaration which occurred on January 17, 2014 and was continued in his April 25th proclamation.
