California drought: Santa Clara County residents failing to meet water conservation goals
On June 9, as California’s historic drought deepened, the largest water agency in Santa Clara County declared a drought emergency and asked the county’s 2 million residents to cut water use by 15% from 2019 levels to preserve dwindling supplies. … But three months later, the public isn’t heeding the call. New water use numbers show that overall, Santa Clara County residents reduced water use by just 6% in July, compared with July 2019 — well short of the 15% target.
