Drought declared in California

Calindrinia spectabilis.  A blooming succulent.
Last Friday Governor Brown officially declared California in a drought.  As a result of this declaration, Gov. Brown has requested a voluntary reduction of water use by 20%.  Please consider reducing your irrigation usage by at least 20%. This can be accomplished easily by eliminating 1 day of watering on your system or reducing the total water usage from 100% to 80%.  The system will automatically reduce runtime by 20% in this setting.

For information on what is causing our drought, this is an informative article http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_24904396?source=blurb.
