Southern California naturally has an arid climate. Current drought conditions and environmental problems are reducing water deliveries to many cities, farms, and businesses. California’s population growth is estimated to reach 60 million by 2050 and rainfall is expected to decrease.
There is an immediate need for Californians to reduce their water use and the best way to do this is to conserve. The district was founded by a group of farmers who saw this need in the 1940s. We continue their legacy of conservation today.
