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.
Don't let Mother Nature fool you. Catastrophic flooding can happen in the middle of a drought, and California is still at risk. It's happened before. That's our message as DWR trains the California Conservation Corps on flood-fighting techniques. Corps members are better prepared to fight floods anywhere across the state after this week's (October 22-23) Twitchell Island Flood-Fight Exercise, led by DWR in coordination with the Sacramento County Office of Emergency Services, Reclamation District 1601 and the U.S Army Corps of Engineers. It's California Flood Preparedness Week, and DWR wants you to "Be Aware, Be Prepared and Take Action." Learn more at www.water.ca.gov/ca-flood-preparedness/
