California State Water Board is set to discuss emergency drought restrictions to further conserve the state’s meager water supplies.
The regulations will limit outdoor watering and driveway car washing, among other rules.

The water board is accepting written comments through Monday, they meet Tuesday in Sacramento to vote on the proposal.
