“Is there still a drought?” People continue to ask this question and the simple, definitive answer is “Yes.” The State Water Resources Control Board ordered a mandatory 36% drop in water usage after the state hit official drought status, and counties, cities, and individuals have complied with different levels of success. Here is a sampling of water savings among the top ten water suppliers in the state since 2013: EBMUD 24%; San Jose Water Co. 32%, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission…See More
