Where's the crisis??

What the hell? We still have 90.6% useable reservoir volume ~~~and~~~ mandatory restrictions?

What am I reading wrong? Or are they simply looking for a good excuse to raise rates again this year?

I've had my water hose on ever since they issued the drought warning. It's about time for me to go fishin in my pond now.
