The Department of Water Resources (DWR) is responsible for managing and protecting California’s water. DWR works with other agencies to benefit the state’s people, and to protect, restore and enhance the natural and human environments.
Since 1957, the California Water Plan has served as the State’s strategic water management and planning roadmap. Today, October 30, DWR released the initial volumes of its latest Water Plan update, prepared over the past five years with input from hundreds of stakeholders. Update 2013 outlines California’s water challenges and details strategies to achieve responsible sustainability of our most precious resource for now and future generations.
