Yesterday, 03.24.2015, San Jose Mercury News writer Eric Kurhi reported that the Santa Clara Valley Water District is proposing reducing water use by 30 percent and limited watering of lawns to twice a week.

Soaring single-family home prices in much of the Bay Area are near or above pre-crash peaks — and topped $1 million in San Francisco for the second month in a row — according to a report released Wednesday.
The median sale price of single-family homes sold in June in the nine-county Bay Area was only 8.6 percent off a 2007 peak of $675,000, according to the real estate information service DataQuick.
