Event Description: 

The state of California Department of Water Resources final water conservation framework addresses requirements of the governor's Executive Order B-37-16; provides information on efficient water use; and includes a proposed implementation timeline.

Framework's 4 Priorities

  • Use Water Wisely includes adoption of new water use standards for all urban water use and a new urban water use target methodology. 
  • Eliminate Water Waste focuses on water system leaks, reporting and capital improvements.
  • Strengthen Local Drought Resilience will require urban water suppliers to submit Water Shortage Contingency Plans and conduct 5-year Drought Risk Assessments.
