DATABASE: Comparing Valley water consumption, conservation

Gov. Jerry Brown may have ordered a 25% cut in water use statewide due to the ongoing drought, but a host of Valley cities could have to do even more.

Clovis, Visalia and Hanford are among the Valley’s biggest water users, and as a result, may have to meet water conservation goals of between 32% and 36% under a proposed plan from the State Water Resources Control Board.

The biggest user in the central San Joaquin Valley? According to state officials, that would be Kingsburg, at over 300 gallons per person per day. By comparison, Fresno’s residents use 135 gallons a day.

Compare water consumption and conservation among the Valley's urban water users in this interactive chart. You can also see how per-person, per-day consumption at other urban water agencies in California compares with the Valley's urban water agencies.
