    Southern California's gigantic water supplier took the unprecedented
    step Tuesday of requiring about 6 million people to cut their outdoor
    watering to one day a week as drought continues to plague the state.

    The board of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California
    declared a water shortage emergency and required the cities and water
    agencies it supplies to implement the cutback on June 1 and enforce it
    or face hefty fines.

    "We don’t have enough water supplies right now to meet normal demand.
    The water is not there," Metropolitan Water District spokesperson
    Rebecca Kimitch said. "This is unprecedented territory. We've never
    done anything like this before."


    I wonder how much water 3 million illegal immigrants use daily?
