For the first time, the city took notice of the weather and acted accordingly: with news of the March rainstorms, officials shut down the irrigation systems at its 450 parks and golf courses and saved 87 million gallons of potable water, enough to provide water to 500 families for a year. More efforts at conservation, like permeable parking lots and storm water capture, are on the way, but SoCal is already in relatively good shape for this drought. [Daily News]
