Conservation Why & How


Water is California’s most precious and natural resource. How we manage it today will affect nearly every aspect of our future. After three consecutive dry years, California is now experiencing a serious drought thats headed towards the most sever stage 3 conditions very quickly. We simply cannot afford to waste any water.

California cannot take its water supply for granted. While state and local leaders continue to work on long­term solutions to our water challenges, saving water on a daily basis helps to stretch our supply. In dry times, conservation is a critical tool to help ensure that we have enough water for our communities, environment, farms and other important parts of our economy. It’s easy for every Californian—young and old—to save water every day. The good news is there are lots of simple ways to reduce the amount of water that we use at home, both inside and outside. If we all work together, we can make a difference for California’s future.
