California Drought Communities In Crisis

In this photo taken Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014, is the Centennial Reservoir, one of the two water sources for the city of Willits, Calif. In the midst of a historic drought, the reservoir is only one-third full, forcing Willits city leaders to ban lawn watering, car washing, and mandated all residents to cut water use.

More than a dozen communities throughout California may not have enough water to last another two months. Then there's Southern California.

The Metropolitan Water District actually has a surplus of the wet stuff. Now the big question is what to do with it? For more on that we're joined now by the district's general manager  Jeffrey Kightlinger.
