A staffer with San Diego Coastkeeper, which pushes for water conservation, claimed water usage was up 25 percent in December 2013 compared with the same month in 2012.

It’s in everyone’s interests to invest in and expand upon local water harvesting.

In San Diego, water rates have gone up so much that even those
who’ve conserved are paying more money for less water. It’s a
troubling sign for water conservation in a region counting on
conquering the lawn love affair.
