Water Conservation

Drought Information

Water is a precious natural resource important to our health, community and the quality of life in the Central Valley. The City of Modesto relies on ground water and surface water for the community’s drinking water supply.

Because water is precious, it is essential to conserve and use water efficiently. The City of Modesto has a long standing commitment to water conservation and offers a variety of programs, informational materials and community outreach events to help the city’s water customers become more water efficient.

In the 2005 & 2010 Urban Water Management Plan, the City developed and approved a Water Conservation Plan. The intent was to better define the City’s Water Conservation Program and to plan for conservation program implementation in the future, while also meeting the state mandatory water use reduction of 20% by the year 2020.

The City has implemented, or plans to implement, all the Best Management Practices included in the 2005/2010 UWMP as defined by the California Urban Water Conservation Council (CUWCC).
