VALLEY DROUGHT 2015 - Cities May Get Increased Water Restrictions

VALLEY DROUGHT 2015 - Cities May Get Increased Water Restrictions

Brand new numbers are out on water usage, and as a state we're doing horribly.

 Water use was down almost 3% in February. That may seem good, but usage was down over 20% in December.

Who's hogging all the water?  Turns out Clovis is guzzling it down. Water usage there was actually up 3%.

Fresno was down 7%.

And Visalia was down over 14%.

 The biggest offenders are in San Diego and Los Angeles. Those areas use almost 70% of the water in the state.

Now, Governor Brown's plans to drop water usage by 25% could be going up for areas that use more than their fair share.

People who live in Clovis, Exeter, Hanford, Kerman, Kingsburg, Lemoore, Los Banos, Merced and Visalia could be looking at mandatory 35% water cuts. Those cities are on a list of over 100 who use what the state calls too much water per person. Because of that, state officials will decide later this month whether to hit these communities with stricter water laws.

Softball Tournament to Benefit Firefighter Pete Dern

Softball Tournament to Benefit Firefighter Pete Dern

As many of you know, Fresno Firefighter Pete Dern was seriously injured with very serious burns when he fell through a roof while fighting a fire recently.

Doctors say the 25-year Fresno Fire veteran severely burned 65 percent of his body. "He is receiving very powerful intravenous pain and sedation medication but he is following commands and appears to be understanding what we are telling him and will do things when we ask him to do that," said Dr. William Dominic.

“Pete means a lot to the department. He is firefighter's captain. He is a leader among leaders in this department, well-respected, sound mind and judgement," said Chief Kerri Donnis.
