Why do we have to save water? I thought we had plenty.

California is in its third consecutive dry year and supplies are significantly lower than what is expected this time of year. CCWD purchases water from the federal Central Valley Project (CVP) and was allocated only enough water this year to meet basic public health and safety needs. In addition to water purchased from the CVP, CCWD will rely on other local supplies and water stored in its Los Vaqueros Reservoir to meet the efficient water needs of its customers. This sharp reduction in available water supplies means we need all customers to use water efficiently and curb wasteful practices.
