California’s Drought Prompts Restaurants To Hold The Water

CBS13 | CBS Sacramento

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A growing number of restaurants aren’t serving water unless patrons ask for it in an effort to save water during California’s drought.

You can still expect to see a smiling face from your server when you first sit down at Mikuni’s in Midtown Sacramento. But a glass of water won’t be there unless you ask, says General Manager Jay DeGuzman.

“Ever since the governor declared that we’re in a drought emergency, right away we were on it,” he said.

The restaurant is part of a growing trend holding the water at the table until guests asks for it.

“We want to do our part to save water,” he said. “The name of the campaign is called Savor The Sips, Mind The Drips.”

Signs sit on tables telling patrons if they want water, then they should ask. And the same goes for refills.
