FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The state is demanding all cities reduce their water usage. Clovis Mayor Nathan Magsig says the city must abide by state rules. People who don't comply will notice a fine on their water bill which will be compared to 2013 figures. "Those individuals who are not taking steps to conserve will be fined on their first offense $25. Second offense up to $50."

The city council adopted an emergency measure on Monday to immediately institute the plan. They also reduced the number of watering days from three to two.

Some people may point to the lush lawn at Clovis Community Medical Center as an example of water waste but Magsig points out the landscape is irrigated by recycled water. null
