CA Statewide Drought Emergency Declared
On January 17th, California Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency in California as the State faces the least amount of rainfall in its 163-year history. No mandatory water restrictions are being proposed for West Basin’s service area. West Basin has adequate imported and recycled water supplies for the coming year due to past investments in recycling and conservation. West Basin’s Water Reliability 2020 program is backed by similar investments in storage and infrastructure by Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. However, we strongly encourage everyone to be water efficient during this time of drought.
