Brentwood Residents Utilize City’s Recycled Water Program as Drought Deepens

According to new numbers just released, Northern California residents have cut their water use by 8.5% in May, but that’s still short of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s drought reduction goal of 15%.

One East Bay city is giving away free water to residents to help conserve. While it may seem counterintuitive, Brentwood has been giving away water since 2015, when the state was also mired in drought.
