Drought Information

The state of California is in its fourth consecutive year of drought. Humboldt County, traditionally one of the wettest counties in the state, is no exception. Many communities in our region are vulnerable to significant drought impacts. This page is intended to providing information about the drought and resources available to the public.

Like last summer, use of potable water is restricted to prevent waste and to achieve an overall statewide 25% reduction in use.
Additional information about the 2015 California drought emergency regulations may be found on the State Water Resources Control Board website.
