Following several months of storms bringing much needed rain and snow to California, at its April 5, 2023, Board meeting, Contra Costa Water District (CCWD) took action to officially modify its Drought Management Program. Most water use prohibitions have been lifted consistent with state mandates and the temporary drought surcharge will sunset at the end of April 2023. 

After multiple years of drought conditions, California received record setting amounts of rain and snow through numerous powerful storms hitting the state since January 2023. Storms have put needed water in reservoirs and banked snow in the mountains; those resources will provide more than adequate supplies to serve CCWD customers in the coming year.
