While California is no longer under the severe drought conditions of 2014-2017, efficient water use remains as important as ever. With this in mind, the library has created a page of local, state, and federal governmental drought and water resources.

Saving Water

Government Agencies




  • US Drought Portal - The Farm Service Agency, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, and the U.S. Forest Service are just a few federal agencies that contribute to the NIDIS. See how the drought affects your area by entering your zip code into the drought meter.
  • Drought Information from the United States Department of Agriculture website has information on drought issues across the nation and by county. The site features a list of all states and the counties affected by drought. All 58 counties of California have detailed information listed.
