Progress toward mandatory water reduction*

Sacramento Suburban Water District water use decreased by 30.68 percent between June 2015 and February 2016 the nine months of the initial statewide conservation mandate but the agency failed to meet a 32 percent reduction.

138.192 billion gallons consumed over the same months in 2013.

95.798 billion gallons consumed between June 2015 and February 2016.

*. Approved by the State Water Resources Control Board in 2015, the reduction target was meant to achieve a 25 percent reduction in water use statewide. It is tied to an average July through Sept. 2014 daily per capita residential water use rate that placed water agencies into nine tiers.
