About Us

On January 17, 2014, California Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. declared a drought state of emergency. California Rural Water Association, in response to current drought conditions, has technical assistance staff available to qualifying small water systems, needing drought planning and assistance. Our technical support team can provide support including developing a drought contingency plan, securing funding for water supply projects, and completing and implementing an emergency response plan.
