California Drought Report #86: Gov. Jerry Brown Declares Drought OVER!

Sierra Foothill Commentary

A deluge of wet weather this winter and unprecedented water conservation prompted Gov. Jerry Brown to end California’s drought emergency on Friday.

But Brown said he would maintain water reporting requirements and bans on wasteful practices like watering during or immediately after rains.

“This drought emergency is over, but the next drought could be around the corner,” Brown said in a statement. “Conservation must remain a way of life.”

It is rare that I agree with Governor Brown, but I do in this case. He is spot on the next drought is just around the corner. That has been the drought history of the Southwest, including California.

With the drought over, this will be my last report until the drought returns in two years. Stay Tuned!
