Malloy urges residents to conserve water amid drought watch

Gov. Dannel Malloy on Friday urged residents, businesses and local governments to reduce water usage by 15 percent in response to the state's first-ever Drought Watch.



The Connecticut Interagency Drought Workgroup says this is the state's first-ever Drought Watch, signaling moderate to severe drought conditions.



Officials say that reduction advisories will remain in effect until the drought watch is lifted.
