Governor Brown has declared a statewide drought emergency  and is asking all Californians to reduce their water use by 20 percent. California is experiencing a serious drought and the state will be challenged to meet its water needs in the upcoming year.
2013 was the driest year in recorded history for many areas of California, and current conditions suggest no change is in sight for 2014.
Save Our Water -- a partnership between ACWA and the California Department of Water Resources -- is mobilizing all of its resources to educate Californians about the drought and steps they can take to help stretch the state's water supply.
