San Diego County Water Authority Update

Good afternoon,
San Diego County leaders.

As our state grapples with the extreme rainfall over the past few weeks, our thoughts are with residents and businesses in areas hardest hit by flooding. While San Diego County was spared the worst impacts, we know that many people across California are struggling to recover from floodwaters and mudflows that not only created untold property damage but also claimed lives.

One of the questions that I get asked a lot is how this epic amount of precipitation affects the drought and our water supplies.  

On the issue of drought, the series of atmospheric rivers has had a positive impact on water supplies following three very dry years. There’s extreme snowfall in the Sierra, and reservoirs in Northern California have risen dramatically.

In addition, the soils statewide have been saturated, helping to replenish groundwater basins.  

But the question of drought is complex. In fact, the science suggests that the western United States is dealing with a long-term trend of hotter and drier weather spanning decades, punctuated by shorter and more intense wet periods like the one we are currently experiencing. With that in mind, no single year of bountiful precipitation is an “end” to drought – rather, good years buy us time to prepare for what’s likely to be many more dry years in the future.  

As for our water supplies, it’s important to remember that our region has invested in diverse supply sources to weather multiple dry years. That means the storms didn’t change our confidence about being able to meet demands for 2023.  That said, local rainfall does create a major benefit by allowing every home and business to turn off their irrigation systems and leave water in reservoirs for when it’s really needed.  

So, after weeks of rain the bottom line remains the same: San Diego County has enough water for foreseeable future, but we must continue to squeeze the most out of each drop.
