  • Implementation Report for California Water Action Plan Now Available

    The implementation report for the California Water Action Plan is now available online.  This report details the origins of the Action Plan, highlights achievements to date, and outlines activities planned for the next four years. A review of state agency actions throughout 2014 shows that more than 100 efforts furthering the Action Plan were either continued or initiated.

    The California Water Action Plan – released by Governor Brown in January 2014 – is a roadmap for the first five years of the state’s commitment toward sustainable water management. Implementation during the first year was marked by significant achievements. In 2014, there was overwhelming voter approval for a $7.545 billion water bond (Proposition 1 in November 2014) and passage of historic groundwater legislation that will provide much needed tools, financial assistance and technical support to assist regions across the state in achieving sustainable groundwater management at the local level.  State agencies undertook numerous actions in response to the drought, including stepping up conservation programs to encourage Californians to reduce their water use by at least 20 percent and enacting measures to protect water supply and water quality. Since July 2014, more than 105 billion gallons of water have been saved compared to last year – enough to supply 1.37 million California residents for a year.

  • Preventing Flood Contamination in the Delta DVD Available
