Written by 

A gathering of Calif. state and federal agency officials presented information and answered questions at a Joint Press Conference hosted by the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) and United States Bureau of Reclamation. Mark Cowin, Director of DWR, (shown in the photo pointing to the map) opened the press conference by reviewing the present extent of the drought in California, saying, "We should all be clear by now that this is not a coming crisis. This is not an evolving crisis. This is a current crisis." Other speakers included David Murillo, Regional Director for the Mid-Pacific Region of the Bureau of Reclamation, Felicia Marcus Chair of the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), and Tom Howard Executive Director of SWCRB. After the presentations, questions were taken from media present at the press conference followed by a round of phone-in questions.
