Fresno water use drops in July

Fresno residents are making significant gains in saving water.

The city's Department of Public Utilities released numbers on Monday for the month of July. Fresno residents used over 4 billion gallons of water last month, compared to 5 billion gallons in July 2013.

The reduction surpasses a state conservation mandate of 28 percent, and it follows a drop in water consumption of 30 percent in June of this year, compared to the same month in 2013.
