A foot wash at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, California, Thursday, May 1, 2014. Starting May 1, the City of Santa Cruz Water Department imposed water rationing on residential customers in an effort to reduce consumption by 25% in response to California’s drought. The department is giving out free water conservation devices to residents. The drought and Santa Cruz’s limited access to fresh water has led to the rationing.
