March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.   Let's hope upcoming storms bring big rain totals for local reservoirs!  Read below about the new 20% voluntary water conservation goals for Livermore Municipal Water users.  Cal Water customers are encouraged to do the same.  Also, congratulations to Jason Alcala, our New City Attorney.  Troy Brown, Acting City Manager/Assistant City Manager
