GOVERNOR DECLARES DROUGHT

With California facing water shortfalls in the driest year in recorded state history, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today proclaimed a State of Emergency and directed state officials to take all necessary actions to prepare for these drought conditions.

“We can’t make it rain, but we can be much better prepared for the terrible consequences that California’s drought now threatens, including dramatically less water for our farms and communities and increased fires in both urban and rural areas,” said Governor Brown. “I’ve declared this emergency and I’m calling all Californians to conserve water in every way possible.”

The Governor has ordered a 20 point plan with a range of measures to help the state conserve at least 20%.  Click here to read the full State of Emergency Proclamation on the 2014 Drought.
