With California in the midst of one of the driest winters on record, Gov. Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency for the state on January 17, 2014 and directed state officials to take all necessary actions to prepare for drought conditions.

The governor's drought declaration came with a call for all Californians to do all they can to reduce water use 20%.

The governor directed Californians to the Save Our Water website -- a partnership between ACWA and the California Department of Water Resources -- to learn ways to reduce household water use, indoor and outdoor.
