When it comes to water conservation efforts, Californians fell short in February.
During the ninth, and final, month under Governor Jerry Brown's historic 25 percent water reduction mandate, urban residents used 12 percent less water compared to the same period in 2013.
This is down from a 17.1 percent reduction in January.
Felicia Marcus, chair of the State Water Resources Control Board, called it an "enormous effort" in saving water, despite the missed target.
"Californians rose to the occasion, reducing irrigation, fixing leaks, taking shorter showers and saving our precious water resources in all sorts of ways," says Marcus.
