California imposes mandatory water restrictions

California is now in the third year of its worst drought since the 1970s. Despite a drought emergency, consumption actually rose in May.

Judy Woodruff talks to Craig Miller of KQED and Timothy Quinn of the Association of California Water Agencies about the new measures.
