Californians cautious to open the spigots, despite relaxed drought rules

Californians still prefer to continue strong water conservation, despite the fact that the local authorities eased mandatory drought targets this year, reports Mercurynews.com on Tuesday.


As a result, the locals cut water use 21.5 percent in June compared with June 2013, according to the State Water Resources Control Board in Sacramento.

Earlier in May, the the State Water Resources Control Board approved plans to drop all the mandatory water conservation targets in the state it had imposed when California's historic drought occurred.

These restrictions implied that each community had a water conservation target, which varied 8 to 36%. Non-compliance with the rule should result in fines. Californians were asked to cut water use 25%.
