California’s Governor recently declared a State of Emergency regarding the state’s current drought conditions.  The release announced the water shortfalls have landed it in the driest year in recorded state history.

Governor Brown’s drought declaration aims to help California better prepare for the dire consequences, which points to a shortage in water supply and increased risk of fire in both urban and rural areas. The declaration calls for all California citizens to conserve water in every way possible.
