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.
Another Dry Year Dramatizes Water Awareness Month
DWR is encouraging water conservation as California moves through a second dry year and observes May as Water Awareness Month. Employees took the conservation message to events including Feather Fiesta Days in Oroville, State Scientist Day at the state Capitol, and Kids’ Fish, Swim, and Fun Day at San Luis Reservoir.
