Climate Resilience and Drought Response

Preparing for drought, flood, fire and climate change. California’s reality. Water agencies’ priority.

Drought Response

With drought conditions persisting throughout the state, ACWA continues to encourage member agencies to communicate their ongoing drought response efforts. ACWA created a webpage that features summaries of member agencies’ drought responses. The site has been serving as an information clearinghouse for the media and policymakers, and the more agencies participate in updating it, the more effective it is in demonstrating how local water agencies play a key role in California’s ability to withstand the drought.

Water Resilience Portfolio

ACWA is active on numerous fronts to meet the challenges of extreme conditions and help shape state and federal policy on drought, flood protection, climate change, and other issues. In Janaury 2020, California state agencies released a draft Water Resilience Portfolio to act as a roadmap for meeting future water needs.
