What We've Learned

Conservation Lifestyle

While this past winter was wetter than the last several, the amount of rain and snow California received was still slightly below average. The precipitation was a welcome change, but one average winter does not solve several years of serious drought. Californians have been taking great strides in their commitment to water conservation, developing a lifestyle as opposed to a momentary quick fix. Saving water is just part of our lifestyle.

Where We Are

About the Drought

Although many California communities benefited from this winter's rain and snow, precipitation for the state was still just below average. Currently, parts of Northern California and most of Central and Southern California remain in severe drought with well below average precipitation and water runoff. Alleviating the drought cannot be solely accomplished in one year and since California is always prone to dry conditions we must focus on our daily conservation habits and making permanent changes to save water. The future is unpredictable; we do not know what next year will bring.
