California residents cut their water use by 10 percent between June and April compared to 2013 but conservation varied widely across the state.
Gov. Jerry Brown has ordered mandatory, statewide cutbacks of 25 percent from June through February as compared to 2013.
Mandatory conservation targets for individual communities range from 4 percent to 36 percent, depending on how much water used per person.
Inland areas that use more water per person tended to show the biggest drops in consumption. Coastal areas that sip water tended to post modest declines.
