Half of City of San Diego council members have decreased their water usage between 2013 and 2014, while the other half have used more water, according to billing records provided by the City.
NBC 7 Investigates obtained water records for San Diego City Council members and Mayor Kevin Faulkner. The usage shows almost all use less than what the water department says is a typical amount.
Earlier this month, San Diego city leaders announced new water fines for excessive water use as California faces a severe drought. They also asked San Diegans to cut back.
