Among the thirstier cities was that usual suspect, Beverly Hills, whose four consecutive months of not meeting their target got them hit with a $61,000 fine in the fall. A few cities and water districts listed below, followed by their conservation targets (left) and their monthly savings in November as compared to November 2013 (right).

Beverly Hills: 32 / 13.3

El Segundo: 20/ 3

Hawthorne: 16 / 4

LADWP: 16 / 10.1

Las Virgenes Water District: 36 / 13.8

Manhattan Beach: 20 / 14.9

Pasadena: 28 / 15.4

San Fernando (city): 24 / 12.9

Overall, the state cut back just 20.3 percent in November (not quite the 25 percent that was mandated) but cumulative water use is down 26.3 percent since June. The good news, says a rep for the State Water Resources Control Board, is that “We expected the percentage drop in the cooler fall and winter months when we use less water in general so we are still on track.” The water board is currently considering making slight adjustments to the water targets that are more reflective of the climate and other factors.
