CLOVERDALE, Calif. (AP) - Officials in Cloverdale in Sonoma County have scaled back water conservation rules after the city’s water situation improved dramatically over the past year.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/17sF8Kh ) the City Council voted this week to drop its mandatory water reduction program, and instead make conservation measures voluntary.

The move comes after Cloverdale saw an overall drop in water use of 37 percent - exceeding the city’s 25 percent goal from 2013 to 2014. The reduction came after the city drilled two new wells and plugged major leaks in pipelines amid a historic drought, which has eased slightly.

Cloverdale’s new voluntary 20 percent reduction goal brings it into conformity with most other cities on the North Coast.
