Los Angeles shifted its water use and began using less from the State Water Project in favor of using more stored Colorado River from the Metropolitan Water District. The switch leaves 20,000 acre-feet available from the SWP for use by communities. Southern Californians were urged to redouble their conservation efforts and continue to use less water.
