Urgency ordinance passed for water use in Paso Robles area

After a more than ten-hour long meeting, the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors passed an urgency ordinance to deal with the depleting groundwater supply in the Paso Robles area. Supervisor Adam Hill says the ordinance essentially stops any further planting or building without water offsets. He says, in 45 days or less, the supervisors will return to the issue and begin looking for a long-term plan to manage the groundwater basin in the north county. The ordinance required all four supervisors to vote yes in order for it to pass. They listened to about six hours of public comment before making a decision.
