As Drought Worsens, California Launches Website to Track Statewide Water Conditions

The Department of Water Resources launched a new website to help Californians easily access information on local and statewide water conditions — down to their own region and even neighborhood.

The California Water Watch site was introduced Friday as the state reported the driest January and February since weather records have been kept.

The website provides real-time information on precipitation, temperature, reservoirs, snowpack, groundwater, streamflow, soil moisture and vegetation conditions as well as forecasts.
