Other parts of the West, Southwest and Southeast are also facing drought.
In fact, as of April 10, nearly a third of the continental United States was in drought.
The specter of a drought-ridden summer has focused renewed urgency on state and local conservation efforts.
Some conservation efforts could fundamentally alter Americans’ behavior in how they use water.
