Water Supply Update – Drought is Not Over
Thank You for A Water-Saving Year
As 2021 comes to an end, the City of Cloverdale thanks all of our water customers for continuing to conserve water every day and acknowledges those doing their part in this community-wide effort.
Throughout 2021, our region experienced the impacts of the third driest water year on record over the last 127 years. Reservoirs are at historic lows and more storms (like the October 24, 2021 atmospheric river event) are needed to increase storage levels to bring an end to this severe drought. Winter is a critical time for water conservation in prolonging our water supply. We urge our community to keep up the great work and effort – water saved now, is water we can use later.

The updated weekly water supply graphic (below) now provides a comparison of storage levels during 2019, 2020 with current 2021 water storage for our two main reservoirs, Lake Sonoma, and Lake Mendocino.
