According to the US Drought Monitor, Napa County is experiencing extreme drought. For the Water Year (beginning October 1, 2021), precipitation across most of California has been much below normal. It is import to conserve water. Save Our Water is a statewide water conservation program. The program’s goal is to make water conservation a daily habit among Californians.
Selecting appropriate plants, mulching, and frequently adjusting irrigation to match the weather are just a few of the actions you can take to save water in your landscape. Learn more about Water-Wise Gardening in the Napa Valley.
In September 2009, the Napa County Board of Supervisors authorized County staff to begin outreach on a water conservation program in the unincorporated county, specifically targeting the Milliken-Sarco-Tulocay (MST) area. County staff, with input from the agricultural community, the Napa County Resource Conservation District, and the California Department of Fish and Game have come up with some opportunities to help residents, growers, and winery owners alike conserve water.
