California has been grappling with drought for roughly five years now. 

Many have done our fair share cutting back on water use, but water officials are worried that the state might not be quite where we need to be. That's the motivation behind a series of new conservation proposals released Wednesday aimed at making water conservation a way of life in California.

This week, a host of agencies released a series of proposals aimed at doing just that. Max Gomberg works with one of those groups. He's the water conservation and climate change manager at the State Water Resources Control Board. He shared the group's proposals with Take Two.
