Consistent with historical trends, California saw its driest year on record in 2013 and its warmest year in 2014. Despite recent rains, the Sierra snowpack remains well below average, groundwater tables are low and falling, and the current drought is expected to continue into the foreseeable future. Water agencies across the state have been mandated to significantly reduce per-capita water use or else lose their eligibility for state grants and loans. More than ever, urban water suppliers are seeking effective strategies for managing residential demand.
