A long-range U.S. government forecast shows the drought in California will stick around.
The drought has farmers cutting back on watering, but some San Joaquin County growers say less water can mean a better crop.
The City of Sacramento Department of Utilities reports Friday that city water customers saved more than one-billion gallons of water last month.
California's economy will see modest growth in 2015, with jobs in home building being a bright spot, and the drought having slight impact, according to the latest University of the Pacific's latest Business Forecast.
It appears messages about the need for water conservation are beginning to get through to Californians.
