December 1, 2015 - Earlier this year, the state of California issued a decree in an effort to conserve water. KUSI reports that overall, San Diegans have done a good job with their water conservation. However, nine cities fell short of their water use goal for the month of October, according to a report released Tuesday by the State Water Resources Control Board. The community of Ramona is also among those who fell short.
The mandates are scheduled to expire in February, but other cities in addition to the nine that missed the bar just barely made it.
Ramona's conservation target was 28 percent. The community just barely missed the mark by conserving 27.7 percent.
Overall, the state lowered water usage 22.2 percent from October of 2013, but that did not reach the 25 percent conservation rate that Governor Brown had set.
