The coastal city Fort Bragg in Mendocino County, California has declared a stage 3 water emergency after the level of the Noyo River, which provides 30 percent of the city's water supply, reached a record low.

To cope with this difficult situation, the City Council enacted strict water conservation measures, which affect both individuals and businesses.
