Governor implements plan to "Make Conservation a California Way of Life."
The California Water Action Plan is a five‐year road map used by the Brown Administration to bring resilience and reliability to our water systems and to restore important ecosystems. Ten principles define California’s Water Action Plan, including “Make Conservation a California Way of Life.”
In May of 2016 Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.signed Executive Order (B‐37‐16) that instructed State agencies to help Californians adopt permanent changes to use water more wisely. The Executive Order laid out a framework for moving the state from temporary, emergency water conservation measures to a more durable approach customized to the unique conditions of each local water agency. This recent report builds upon the Executive Order and provides recommendations for how to implement long‐term improvements to water supply management that support water conservation.
