South Bay water district may approve water usage reduction
Silicon Valley's largest water provider is ready to take action.
On Tuesday, the Santa Clara Valley Water District's board of directors is expected to approve a 20 percent reduction in water use, double what the agency first requested last month.
If it happens, the reduction would be the district's largest cutback since it requested a 25 percent cut during the 1987-1992 drought.
The conservation order could lead to everything from new restrictions on lawn watering to temporary hikes in water rates.
