California is facing the most significant water crisis in its history.

After experiencing two years of drought and the driest spring in recorded history, water reserves are extremely low.

There are 29 state agencies that deliver the state's water supply and every one will see huge cutbacks beginning January 1st.

The Delta Ecosystem Nears Collapse

With the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta ecosystem near collapse, court-ordered restrictions on water deliveries from the Delta have reduced supplies from the state's two largest water systems by twenty to thirty percent.

Colorado River Basin and Sierra Snowpack Drought Conditions

Drought conditions in the Colorado River Basin and a Sierra snowpack that is now dangerously unreliable due to global climate change, is leaving many communities throughout California facing mandatory restrictions on water use and/or rising water bills. If the drought continues into next year, the results could be catastrophic to our economy.

California's 2009 Drought Water Bank

To help facilitate the exchange of water throughout the state, DWR has established a 2009 Drought Water Bank. To implement the 2009 Drought Water Bank DWR will purchase water from willing sellers primarily from water suppliers upstream of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. This water will be transferred using State Water Project (SWP) or Central Valley Project (CVP) facilities to water suppliers that are at risk of experiencing water shortages in 2009 due to drought conditions and that require supplemental water supplies to meet anticipated demands.

Climate Change and Droughts

Climate change is already impacting California's water resources. In the future, warmer temperatures, different patterns of precipitation and runoff, and rising sea levels will profoundly affect the ability to manage water supplies and other natural resources. Adapting California's water management systems to climate change presents one of the most significant challenges for the 21st century.
