Just a year ago, California drought conditions were at their worst. The Sierra snowpack was at a historic low, we experienced record-high temperatures, and our state encountered its first-ever mandatory conservation measures issued by Gov. Jerry Brown. Earlier this year, while rainfall and snowpack in Northern California helped to replenish state reservoirs, the much anticipated El Niño presented a disappointing outcome by bringing minimal drought relief to Southern California. Because we rely on importing water from hundreds of miles away for almost two-thirds of our water supply, our water supplies are vulnerable to water shortages that may occur elsewhere.
