Water & Drought

California slips on water conservation

California’s progress on water conservation slipped as the drought stretched into fall. In October, statewide water use declined 6.7 percent compared to 2013. The two prior months saw double-digit savings. The Los Angeles metro region trimmed its water use 1.4 percent, dragging down the state average.
