Agency: Californians do better on saving water but still miss state goal of 20 percent in cuts

New figures show Californians are doing slightly better on conserving water during the drought.

The state Water Resources Control Board reported Tuesday that Californians cut overall water use by 9.8 percent in November compared to the same period a year ago.

Gov. Jerry Brown has asked state residents to cut use by 20 percent — a figure that has yet to be reached.

Central Coast residents did the best in November, cutting use by 21 percent. Residents of south-east regions reduced use by just 1.2 percent.
