This is an interactive visualization of water conservation for utilities in the San Francisco Bay Region during the summer months (June-August) of 2014, 2015, and 2016. These visualizations are linked together, so filtering data on one chart will update all the other charts

Select a water supplier in the top graph to see how much water that utility saved each summer, and whether watering restrictions played a role in those savings
