California’s 2018 water conservation legislation directed DWR to:
1. Identify small suppliers and rural communities at risk of drought and water shortages
2. Develop recommendations to improve drought contingency planning for these at-risk areas
Changes to existing law that apply to small water suppliers and rural community drought planning appear in the California Water Code, Section 8, Chapter 10 (starting at Section 10609.40) and added to Part 2.55 of Division 6.
