LOS ANGELES — As the drought continues on for a third consecutive year and water supplies continue to be limited, Southern Californians have been asked to cut back their water use.

Ayala turned to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California to speak with a conservation specialist. The agency will start offering home surveys in June.
