In 1986, when cities in Orange County began contracting with Caltrans to make highway improvements, they diverted some of the preliminary work to private consultants in an effort to speed things up.

Orange County is on its way to the wettest February in six years, but the heavy rain and six-foot surf have caused no apparent damage to the county's beleaguered piers. Moreover, the storm that may arrive in Orange County today is now expected to be weaker than originally forecast. The National Weather Service forecast a 70% chance of rain today becoming "briefly heavy" but diminishing on Thursday. Highs are expected to be in the low to middle 60s with the lows tonight in the mid-50s.

Prodded by five years of drought and little hope of quick relief, five Southeast cities and Long Beach have now passed water conservation measures that carry penalties for water wasters. On Tuesday night, Norwalk became the latest city to approve an ordinance mandating that residents and businesses curb their water use until the state receives enough rain to fill alarmingly low reservoirs. The Norwalk ordinance is scheduled to take effect April 5.
