The state has mandated that Alhambra reduce its water useage by 24 percent. In response to this directive, the city enacted a water ordinance that allows watering only from 6pm to 8am, and only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
City staff says that residents have been hitting the benchmark thus far. Compared to water usage figures from two years ago, Alhambrans have cut its water useage by 24 percent.
The Source is curious: what have residents been doing to meet the goal?
What are you doing to conserve water during the drought?
