6:16 pm
months that followed water use actually went up. so in may, newsom said he was considering ordering mandatory water restrictions. on tuesday, the east bay municipal utility district announced that their customers took that threat to heart through the summer and our customers have gone from 6% conservation in may to 12% in june to nearly 17 16.5% in the month of july compared to 2020 a single person i don't use a lot of water overall. but i tried not to waste it. doing what i can. i have a large lot, and we've landscaped a lot of it. so we've cut down to once a week, different sections, so we water is little as we can. the fact is , a lot of people are taking the drought very seriously. example they still have some landscaping , but where they don't need grass. they don't put grass anymore than includes checking
6:17 pm
for leaks inside and outside, switching from grass to mulch or stone or gravel or low consumption, gardens or just letting it go. brown 30% of water is used in the outdoor landscape. and so we believe that that's the reason that we're seeing the larger numbers right now, and we like to go boating, and so a lot of the lakes are so low. you can't even get your boat in anymore. what we can save now will mostly be around next year if the drought continues. tom vacar ktvu fox two news earlier today, on mornings onto the nine we spoke with the general manager of the central contra costa sanitary district about the benefits of using recycled water during this drought that water you take it to into storage and you saw it for quite a long time. 36 months and then you can bring it back into the system and treated again and then you can use it for all sorts of beneficial use. and so that's to me is the golden opportunity. we have for
6:18 pm
recycled water, so my goal is to work with the water agencies and a very big regional basis and find ways. to deliver this water that we have and make it available to them and move it around any which way they decide to do so. recycled water is increasingly being used in southern california, the los angeles department of water and power just started offering 300 gallons of free recycled water for home irrigation. and all month ktvu will be taking a look at the drought impact on our community and the response efforts to this water crisis. you can find more stories about the drought up at our website just had two ktvu .com/ drought. already pretty warm day inland. today we saw triple digit heat and fairfield got to 100 degrees . antioco was just click short with 99 degrees, much warmer inland. i don't think it'll be quite as warm tomorrow inland. i think we're gonna we've got fog

6:46 pm
the experience of hurricane ida. because our entire city lost power for 10 days. and every restaurant in our city had to throw away all of their food, everything that was in the freezer in the fridge at the same exact time, a lot of people in our city were struggling. there was hunger orleans nonprofit feed. the second line, believes the solution lies with solar power. their goal is to install solar panels that can withstand hurricane force winds on 300 restaurants across new orleans. we're trying to build up local brasiliense and just empower restaurants to really take care of their neighborhood. so when the whole city's power goes out, that restaurant saves their food than they can use that food to feed their neighbors. they can become a cooling center. give out ice to people and that might save somebody's life in the days after hurricane and louisiana we have the sun. it's always it's blistering. why not use it? lisa nelson is the owner of a caribbean restaurant called queen trainee, lisa. it's the
6:47 pm
first restaurant to become a solar powered micro grid after hurricane ida was very emotional for me. yes i had the troy lot of stuff and i was also i lost my income feels more prepared heading into the peak of this hurricane season, knowing she'll be able to keep her fridge is running and stay open for her neighborhood. it's going to be a wonderful at least we can charge their phones kept them fed them cool just just to give them a glimpse of hope. some kind of hope. of course, the big question is, where is the money for this coming from? so far, the nonprofit has crowdfunded the project, but they hope to receive either local or federal government funding because they believe this is an idea that could benefit all hurricane prone communities in new orleans, rebecca castor fox news and we are tracking the weather around here. we had temperatures today. they got up there. we had some low one hundreds in those inland bay valleys. fairfield hit 100 degrees. antioco was just a degree shy. i'm sure some
6:48 pm
neighborhoods in antioch had 100 degrees, but you see much cooler around the base, 78, oakland and 81 in hayward, 79. fremont high temperatures tomorrow. and about the same around the bay, but not as hot inland. it's still going to be in the mid nineties inland, but i don't think we'll see one hundred's few clouds out there. not only are there the high clouds, but there are the low clouds. the coastal fog is back. it's been gone for a little while and then you can see this is some tropical moisture pretty much streaming in from this hurricane, or x hurricane frank, which is pushing moisture up towards us, so those higher clouds might increase the humidity a little bit there mostly up there pretty pretty high up in northern california near the fire zones. check this out some lightning strikes. how does the south and east of the fire zone you can see where happy camp and then y rica. these are, yeah. lightning hits, and so there is a red flag warning up their concerns for exactly this. doesn't mean that they're getting a lot of dry lightning, but they're getting some, and that's certainly
6:49 pm
something to think about. so we'll keep an eye on that for you tonight. we'll have more and then the current temperatures are running ahead of where they were last night, this time by a good 89 10 degrees. in some places, the overnight lows will be mild. yet again. that's because it's the humidity still sticking around. so i mean antioch's coldest temperature. lowest temperature. tonight's going to be 66 degrees. ah this is pretty warm. you wake up pretty warm in antioch forecast tomorrow lot of clouds. they kind of go. there's the high clouds and then you see the fog's back at the coast and you see all that afternoon clearing. i think we will see temperatures into the mid nineties. certainly we again we really worried at some spots really crank the heat today with big games like a couple areas in the east bay went up a good 10, 15 degrees 90 and santa rosa tomorrow 95 in fairfield 94. then the five day forecast so maybe a slight chance of it. sprinkler or something late tonight, early tomorrow morning, but not not putting it in and then you can kind of see temperatures just
6:50 pm
sort of stay in the low nineties . it's not horrible fire danger , but it's something to think about because it is summer, and as we move forward here, things are drying out. more and more. i will see you back here at 10. all right, we'll see you. then bill i do. technology being tested could be a game changer for those with hearing loss. us. officials report roughly 29 million adults could benefit from using a hearing aid. now a new generation of smart glasses could replace the hearing aid. the glasses used something called x ray glass that converts conversations into text. it allows those with hearing impairments to see conversations on the lenses of their augmented reality glasses in real time. the big moment enabled me to be involved in me to make decisions because i know what is being said. officials say the software will soon be able to translate different languages, accents, pitch and voice tones as well. but the technology is still being refined right now, the

6:55 pm
largely platooned, where he excelled against left handed pitchers in his third season with the giants. rough had 11 home runs and 2 16 batting average. it goes to the mets for infielder jd davis and three pitching prospects cheesesteak in his last very effective start . carlos rodent looked very much like someone and team in a pennant race would like to acquire, but he's staying put done is nine and six in his 21 starts with an earned run average of three. he has a player option at the end of the season, which might have discouraged other teams who were interested in brass must feel they still have the ability to get into that last nationally wildcard spot currently 4.5 games distant that also explains why they held on to another player. who had appeal elsewhere . outfielder jaak peterson. peterson like redon, was an all star and is leading the team with 17 home runs. he's on a one year deal. giants have both the phillies and the cardinals in front of them for that last wild card spot. johns president of baseball operations isn't throwing in the towel. again i
