California residents slashed their water use by 31 percent in July from the same time in 2013, a mark well above Governor Jerry Brown's 25 percent target for the state. The Bay Area cut its water use by 32.3 percent. Although talk of an impending wet El Niño winter has been rampant lately, state officials have warned Californians that they can't abandon drought-time measures yet and should continue cutting water usage heading into the potentially rainier months.
