4:44 am
>> distressing new images from the santa clara santa clara valley water district the agency shared this video on how the reservoirs look in april of 2017 when they were full and how they look now last and look at that. the difference. dramatic there are several reasons for the low water levels. one is that we've had 2 dry winters back to back. the second is that the district brings in water from the state. but since state reservoirs are low, the district isn't getting as much water as usual. >> every drop helps. so a drop save now is a draft that we have next year, especially if things are very bad. this is a
4:45 am
different problem. the energy thing where you're asked to conserve one day and then the next day there's energy once you're in a drought. it's going to take months and months to fix the problem because it takes a long time to get in the groundwater. >> of the santa clara valley water district issued a mandatory 15% water use reduction for its customers. the district is also holding talks with the san francisco public utilities commission about tapping into their supply as well. and john, we're looking at pitcher side to side. back to back and it is really jarring to see what's happening out there. not only are we concerned about our water but also the air for today. good morning. yeah. water is obviously the biggest concern from the drought as far as air quality goes. >> that's an immediate concern as we start to see some of that smoke drifting its way back on into the bay area as we see this pattern shift occurring. that's also going bring us quite the warm-up temperatures climbing notably today as compared to where we
