Drought & Water Efficiency Resource Center

California is experiencing drought following two critically dry years - locally and statewide. Wise investments in local storage at Los Vaqueros Reservoir and our customers' strong conservation ethic are helping us through this drought. However, we all must look for ways to conserve now. The Contra Costa Water District Board of Directors endorsed a Stage 1 water shortage level and is now asking customers to voluntarily reduce water use by up to 10% from 2020 water use. See resources below to help you continue using water wisely! Plus, check out our water saving tips videos.
