California Governor Gavin Newsom declares drought emergency in 41 counties

California Governor Gavin Newsom issued an expanded drought emergency proclamation for 41 of the state’s 58 counties, citing above-average temperatures and dry conditions for April and May.

Newsom directed the state’s water board to consider modifying requirements for reservoir releases and take other conservation measures.

The declaration also gives the state flexibility in regulatory requirements to mitigate drought impacts, which Newsom attributed in part to global climate change.

Newsom said yesterday that they are working with local officials and other partners to protect public health and safety and the environment.
