The new numbers are out on water conservation. It seems that we are slipping back into bad habits as California enters its sixth year of drought.
Water conversation slipped for the third consecutive month in August with Californians saving less than 18 percent.
That's down ten percent from a year earlier according to the State Water Resources Board.
New data shows that several of the worst offenders are the affluent cities that previously have been criticized for using way too much water.
Last winter, near-average rain and snow fell mostly in northern California prompting state water officials to relax their conservation efforts.
In January, regulators will consider returning to state-mandated water restrictions.
