2015 Drought: Four Years and Counting

April 9th, 2015

California is drawing national attention as it enters into a fourth year of devastating drought. The state’s record low snowpack and diminishing reservoir levels have pushed the state into uncharted territory, with worsening impacts on water quality, agriculture, fire response, habitat, and fish and wildlife.

As the state braces for a hot and dry summer, top state, federal and local officials will discuss drought response actions, impacts and steps underway to stretch California’s depleted water reserves this year.

The briefing is presented by the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) in partnership with the California Department of Water Resources, the California State Association of Counties (CSAC), the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, the League of California Cities, the California Farm Water Coalition, the California Farm Bureau Federation, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the California Office of Emergency Services and Cal Fire.
