California cities and industrial users were warned by the US Bureau of Reclamation to prepare for a fourth dry year with possible “conservation actions” as drought persists despite early rains. Water storage was near historic lows, with Shasta Reservoir, the largest reservoir in the Central Valley Project, was at 31% of capacity. The rainy season generally begins in October and runs through March or April.
