A drought that has blanketed the state with a record-high water use has reached its boiling point.
But it may not be over for everyone.
A state official says it may take months to reach a new level of water restrictions that are part of a federal order that will take effect on Wednesday, but many residents may be surprised to find out.
The state’s top water official says the water supply in some areas is already at a boiling point, and the state has to start rationing supplies in order to prevent a severe water shortage.
The California drought is expected to cost California $1 billion in lost revenue and economic losses and has led to more than 2,500 water rescues, according to the governor’s office.
The drought has forced the closure of more than 1,000 schools and led to the loss of tens of millions of dollars in agricultural production and other economic losses, according the governor.
The order also limits water use by businesses to the lowest amount possible and imposes a water rationing requirement that will affect 1.5 million residents and businesses statewide.
Gavin Newsom said Tuesday that he will sign the federal order on Wednesday that will begin enforcing a temporary water restriction that will continue through July 31.
State agencies are also being forced to ration water supplies to the maximum amount possible to avoid a situation where supplies run out in some places.
Newsom said that the state will also begin imposing a temporary cap on water usage in certain areas of the state.
The cap is intended to help prevent water shortages in some parts of the central valley, but it will not prevent shortages in parts of Los Angeles County, where some residents have complained of the water shortages.
The restrictions are designed to help alleviate some of the impacts of the drought, but some water users are already struggling to keep their water supply running.
A recent study by the University of California found that while California’s population grew by 9.4 percent between 2010 and 2014, its water use per person rose by 1.6 percent.
That means that in California’s urban centers, water use rose by 20.2 percent between 2015 and 2020, the study found.
In San Francisco, which accounts for roughly 10 percent of the country’s population, the number of people using water exceeded the amount of water needed for the entire city.
That meant that more than 8.5 percent of households were relying on more than their allotment of water per person.
In Oakland, which is home to the Bay Area’s largest population, that number reached 11.6 million people, and water usage per person doubled between 2015 to 2016, the report said.
That’s the kind of situation that is predicted to worsen as California continues to struggle with water shortages, said Mark Staver, an expert on water issues at the University and former governor of Vermont.
People in areas with high levels of water consumption will also face higher water costs, he said.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated in March that the number a Californian household could expect to pay to pay for water in July would increase from $5,600 to $15,800.
The price hikes could also lead to higher prices for other products.
The price of bottled water in California rose 7.4 cents per liter between June and August, according a report from the California Department of Finance.
