New Resource Page Keeps You Up-To-Date with Drought Gripping West
Foundation-created resource page includes newsfeed, helpful conservation tips, weekly drought severity map & answers to commonly asked questions
For anyone trying to keep up with the unfolding drought in California and the West, the Water Education Foundation has created a special resource page that offers links to real-time reservoir data and water supply forecasts, an ongoing newsfeed to help you stay up to date on the latest news and tips so you can help conserve the region’s most precious natural resource.
Already, reservoir levels have plummeted, water-short farmers are fallowing fields or plowing them under, salmon spawning grounds are in jeopardy and water agencies are pleading for conservation to stretch an evaporating supply.
The All Things Drought information page offers resources, tips and the latest information on the 2021 drought gripping the West, such as:
- A map showing how drought is changing every week in California and across the West
- Water levels for reservoirs in California and key Colorado River reservoirs
- A newsfeed of the latest drought news from across the West, drawn from our Aquafornia daily water news aggregation
- Studies on drought and water use in California and the Colorado River Basin, a key source of water for Southern California
- A sampling of recent articles on drought-related issues in California and the Colorado River Basin from our own Western Water online news site
