CITY HALL Water officials, disappointed with the results from a long-standing voluntary water conservation campaign, are continuing to warn residents to cut back as they prepare to recommend mandatory restrictions to the City Council later this month. The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, which supplies up to 70% of the utility’s water, is set to reduce all shipments to its member agencies by 10% July 1 as a result of a statewide water crisis.
