FILE - In this Jan. 19, 1999, file photo, is a street scene in Mendocino, Calif. A Northern California coastal town popular with tourists is running out of water after two years of critically low rainfall during a drought in the U.S. West, forcing residents and business owners to truck in water from elsewhere. The 170-year-old hamlet known for its beaches, cliffside trails and redwood forests, relies on mostly shallow, rain-dependent aquifers, and many of the wells are running low or have dried up, the Press Democrat reported Thursday, July 22, 2021.
