From page B1 | February 10, 2014 |

SACRAMENTO – Assembly Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee Vice Chairman Frank Bigelow, R-O’Neals, issued the following statement recently, as California agencies respond to California’s continued grim water condition:

“With the state’s driest year on record, it is imperative that all Californians do their part to reduce their water use,” Bigelow said. “Just today it was announced that our snowpack is at 12 percent of average for this time of year. California is in a dire situation and every drop of water is critically important to our communities and California’s agriculture industry.”
