California has the most variable weather conditions in the United States, often varying between extremes such as drought and flood. Our ability to forecast variable weather conditions well in advance is a driving factor in how water managers maximize the benefits and minimize the hazards of each storm.

DWR continues to advance the Delta Conveyance Project, which is being planned to maintain reliability of the state’s water system in decades to come.
