In times of drought, those who feel the effects of water shortage the most are small water systems and their customers whose reliance on marginal wells, springs, and small creeks make them especially sensitive to annual rainfall totals. Urban systems are undoubtedly spared compared to their smaller community counterparts. However, small water systems do not necessarily need to be so adversely affected. Following a recommendation made by the Governor's Advisory Drought Planning Panel, California Rural Water Association (CRWA) will bring small water systems a myriad of resources to aid in dealing with water shortages in times of drought.
The immense size of California enables droughts to occur at different times throughout the state. Vulnerability to dry conditions means that consumers consider water reliability to be of the upmost importance.
There are many ways to look at the term conservation. It can be approached as a cost-benefit model that involves trade-offs, it can be seen as simply meaning deprivation, or it can be looked at as a healthy model of improved efficiency.
