As a New Mexican, water conservation has been a part of my life since well before California's recent drought. Yet, despite best efforts, I have had a hard time decreasing usage, until recently.

Although my records don't last the entire time I've lived in my current house, I do have more than two years of utility bills handy to review my usage. As you can see in the chart, only in the past few months have I made significant year-over-year progress.
