The emergency drought order was lifted except in Fresno, Kings, Tulare and Tuolumne but officials insisted they’re holding onto some conservation rules. “Water may appear to be in abundance right now. But even after this unusually wet season, there won’t be enough water to satisfy all the demands of agriculture, business and cities, without draining our rivers and groundwater basins below sustainable levels,” said Kate Poole, director of the Natural Resources Defense Council. The state will continue to forbid Californians from hosing off sidewalks, watering their lawns during or immediately after  Until now, the drought strained native fish that migrate up rivers, killed more than 100 million trees and put the agriculture in big difficulty with dramatically less water for the farms during many years.
