I'll update the blog regularly with news about the drought and how you can save water to help all of us get through what looks to be a difficult spring and summer.
As I write this first post on Feb. 12, it's raining in Concord.
That's good news, but we're way behind in rainfall and -- more importantly -- snowfall in the Sierra. We need a lot of precipitation to catch up after two years of drought that has left reservoirs throughout the state well-below their normal storage supplies.
Even thought it's raining today, water rationing may be unavoidable this spring.
We are committed to implementing a rationing plan that is fair. We are also assisting our customers by providing rebates on water-saving appliances like toilets and washing machines, free conservation devices and information from the professionals in our Water Conservation Department.

Please send a comment or a question, and we'll get right back to you.
