Why did the City move from a Stage 3 to Stage 2 Water Shortage Event?

Although local water supplies are still recovering after several years of drought and water shortage, the City is able to move to a Stage 2 because of recent regulatory changes that restored the amount of water the City can use from one of the local groundwater basins, and the City’s other sources remain relatively stable.
