Introducing the DRIP collaborative, a hedge against climate extremes
SACRAMENTO – (INT) – Even as California’s drought outlook improves, the State Department of Water Resources (DWR) is launching an offensive against future rainfall deficits.
The DRIP collaborative is aimed at fostering partnerships between local governments, experts, community representatives and state agencies to address drought planning, emergency response, and ongoing management.
The public, community members and water users are encouraged to get involved.
The DWR says 4-weeks of storms have filled many of the state’s reservoirs to average or above- average levels. But much of the state remains water-deficient following three years of extreme drought.
