Water use in the Coachella Valley continued to tick downwards in July, but conservation is still falling short of the state's goal of a 15% reduction compared to 2020, according to data released by the State Water Resources Control Board this week. But the July water use numbers do continue a trend of reduced water use that began in June, a marked shift from May and other previous months in which local water districts actually increased — rather than decreased — water use compared to 2020 baseline numbers.
