The Metropolitan Water District, the Los Angeles-based water wholesaler, voted today to trim deliveries to Southern California cities — including San Diego — by 10 percent.
The San Diego County Water Authority has said the move will likely require local cities to cut deliveries to residents by a total of 6-7 percent.
The city of San Diego believes it can achieve that target without implementing the water-cuts plan that’s been discussed the last two months. It would do that by implementing such restrictions as designated lawn-watering days.
The authority is holding a press briefing at 2:30 p.m. We’ll have more later.
