The recent historic drought took a toll on California's water supply and landscape. It also changed the way our community uses water. At times during the drought, our community conserved more than 50% (compared to 2013 usage). We continue to use about 25% less than 2013.
Although we have experienced several wetter years since the multi-year drought that resulted in devastating tree mortality and wildfire, we know that California's weather history is one that continuously cycles between wonderful wet years and dry years. Drought is "normal" in California and so we our always watching the water supply and planning to ensure our community has a reliable water supply no matter what may come.
