County Drought Advisory Group Meeting - February 27, 2019

A view of the dry San Juan Creek in Shandon, Calif. on April 29th, 2015
Many waterways like the San Juan Creek ran dry during California’s historic drought of 2012-2016.

The second County Drought Advisory Group (CDAG) meeting was held on February 27, 2019. The purpose of the second CDAG meeting is to:


  • Discuss and revise drought and water shortage risk factors developed from the December CDAG meeting breakout groups

  • Discuss and revise water shortage risk recommendations compiled from relevant studies and other research

Interested stakeholders can add their voices to the event’s breakout group discussions. If you cannot attend, a call-in option will be provided before the meeting.  


CDAG meetings are primarily attended by CDAG members, but are open to the general public. Please RSVP to James Campagna of DWR's Water Use and Efficiency branch.

California’s 2018 water conservation legislation directed DWR to:

  1. Identify small suppliers and rural communities at risk of drought and water shortages

  2. Develop recommendations to improve drought contingency planning for these at-risk areas


Changes to existing law that apply to small water suppliers and rural community drought planning appear in the California Water Code, Section 8, Chapter 10 (starting at Section 10609.40) and added to Part 2.55 of Division 6.
