Governor Jerry Brown on Friday declared a drought emergency for the state, saying it is facing perhaps “the worst drought that California has ever seen since records (began) about 100 years ago.”

He called for voluntary “20% conservation of our water use” by residents.

There are no mandatory water restrictions at this time, the Governor says he will work with water districts around California.
