Once again, California is in the midst of a severe drought. In fact, 2022 is turning out to be the state’s driest year on record so far. As water providers continue to plan and prepare for extended dry conditions, residents and businesses statewide are being called to take action and voluntarily reduce water use by 20-30% to extend our limited water supplies.
