LOS ANGELES -- California officials are getting ballsy about fighting the state's drought. On Tuesday, officials released thousands of "shade balls" to protect the water from dust, chemicals, wildlife and -- most importantly -- evaporation. "LA just completed a project at the LA Reservoir to save 300 million gallons of water by deploying shade balls on its surface, saving our city over $250 million dollars while keeping our water clean & safe,"Mayor Eric Garcetti posted on Facebook.
