Californians Slack Off on Water Conservation in Newest Numbers

Californians saved less water in November 2015 than in any month since mandatory cutbacks took effect last June, and two percent less than what we saved in November 2014.

Only 262 water suppliers met their conservation standard in November; that's 11 fewer than June 2015, the very first month of mandatory conservation.

Overall, California is still on target with a cumulative savings of just over 26 percent, thanks to strong conservation in previous months.

November conservation

Now that winter rains have arrived, it's a bit tougher to save water; you can't just cut back on the lawn and garden. But there's plenty to do indoors, where conservation in the next two months might make the difference between missing the statewide conservation goal of 25 percent, and hitting it.
