The state Public Utilities Commission on Thursday ordered the Valencia Water Co. to conduct a detailed study of its water supplies, postponing construction of more than 4,000 homes in the booming development area. The five-member commission ratified a judge's decision that the water company, owned by Newhall Land & Farming Co., the area's major landowner, must prove that it has sufficient supplies to expand its territory without jeopardizing the supply and quality of water for current customers.

The unspoiled savanna was once home to Native Americans who harvested acorns for food and used wild tobacco as a muscle relaxant, conservationists say.
