February 2014 Drought Update

Dear Neighbor,

With California facing one of the most severe droughts on record, Governor Brown declared a drought State of Emergency directing state officials to take all necessary actions to prepare for water shortages.

At the local level, the state is working to protect communities from the dangers of extreme drought. Given our region’s vulnerability to fires, CAL FIRE has hired additional firefighters and is continuously adjusting staffing to help address the increased fire threat due to drought conditions. We are now calling on all Californians to voluntarily reduce their water usage by 20 percent.

I recently filmed a public service announcement encouraging residents to conserve water. I urge you to watch the PSA and share it with your family and friends. Rethinking the way we use water can help stretch limited supplies.
