Californians stepped up their water conservation in May. The state is the midst of its worst drought in history. Ed Joyce reports from Sacramento.
The State Water Resources Control Board says Californians achieved their best conservation yet, cutting water use 29 percent in May compared to two years ago.
The board says rain in parts of the state likely drove the May water savings. But the rain did nothing to ease drought conditions.
Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency in 2014 and things have gotten worse.
