Maps of California 2010-2018 showing water conditions in the the state

On April 7, 2017, the Governor lifted the drought state of emergency for most of California due to the historic rainfall over the winter. This has greatly improved water supply conditions for the state after five years of exceptional drought. Consistent with this action and in recognition that all of our service area remains in moderate drought conditions, LVMWD modified the Water Shortage Condition, from Stage 3 – Water Shortage Emergency to Stage 1 – Water Shortage Alert, on April 25, 2017. Customers are urged to continue efficient water use and adhere to mandatory conservation measures.

While the rains were able to bring an end to the worst drought in the state’s history, much of Southern California remains abnormally dry or in moderate drought conditions. Local water conditions will likely need several years of normal to above normal rainfall to fully recover from the drought.  

Unfortunately, this year, 2018, has resulted in disappointing rainfall totals across the state and snow pack which is critically below normal. The volatility of rainfall in California underscores the need to make conservation a California way of life. Please take the time to explore the information below to better understand how important your water use is to helping us manage this precious resource.
