WHAT WE'VE LEARNED
The drought taught us that adapting to a water conservation lifestyle is necessary to ensure our community continues to thrive in an uncertain water future. Even though the drought emergency declaration has been removed, protective water conservation measures remain in place to help prevent wasteful water use. Adopting a water-efficient lifestyle builds water-use resilience under any water supply condition!

On April 7, 2017 Governor Brown issued Executive Order B-40-17, terminating the California drought emergency in most parts of California. Subsequently, upon confirmation of anticipated adequate water supply conditions for 2017, the Pleasanton City Council affirmed the reclassification of Pleasanton's water supply level to Adequate Supply under the City's Water Management Plan. Mandatory conservation measures remain in effect to prevent water waste, as specified within the State's Making Water Conservation a California Way of Life Plan.
