An emergency regulation to increase conservation practices for all Californians will go into effect shortly. The new conservation regulation targets outdoor urban water use. In some areas of the State, 50 percent or more of daily water use is for lawns and outdoor landscaping. This regulation establishes the minimum level of activity that residents, businesses and water suppliers must meet as the drought deepens and will be in effect for 270 days unless extended or repealed.

Our number one priority is devoting all available resources to pursuing justice for Eli and his family.
As a father myself, I am horrified by this senseless crime.
I met with Eli’s family last night and shared the investigative steps that we are taking, which includes bringing in additional resources from outside agencies. The Coroner’s Office has promised to make analyzing toxicology and lab reports for this case its top priority. Likewise, the Department of Justice has made processing evidence from the vehicle used in this crime its top priority as well. Our detectives and other police personnel have been working around the clock, continuing to interview witnesses and gather additional evidence.
It is not a matter of whether a crime was committed in this case. It is a matter of gathering and analyzing all of the evidence to determine what crimes may have been committed. By law, we are required to release juvenile suspects after holding them for 48 hours if they have not yet been charged with a crime.
I understand and share the community’s frustration and outrage over Eli’s tragic death. We are working hard to complete the investigation as quickly as possible.
I intend to keep Eli’s family and the community informed during the investigation.
Sadly, another tragedy has claimed the life of one of our precious children. Our sincere condolences and heartfelt prayers are conveyed to the family, friends and those closely impacted by the loss of the young boy in this senseless act on the evening of Sunday, October 19. Children are our treasure and the losses we have experienced should never have happened. There simply is no excuse for inattentive and reckless driving, especially at this great cost.
Por desgracia, otra tragedia ha cobrado la vida de uno de nuestros preciosos niños. Nuestro más sincero pésame y fervientes oraciones se transmitió a la familia, los amigos y las personas estrechamente afectados, por la pérdida del joven en este acto sin sentido en la noche del 19 de octubre. Los niños son nuestro tesoro y las pérdidas que han experimentado nunca debería haber sucedido. Simplemente no hay excusa para distraídos y conducción temeraria, en particular en esta gran costo.

A one-time allocation of $50,000 will be deposited into a revolving fund that will be disbursed pursuant to the guidelines established below.

Water is California's most precious natural resource. How we manage it today will affect nearly every aspect of our future.
When our state enjoys a year of abundant rain and our reservoirs are full, it is easy to think that our water supply is endless. But in California, the next drought may be just around the corner. After three consecutive dry years, California is now experiencing a serious drought. We simply cannot afford to waste any water.
