Drought Town Hall Meetings

Sonoma county residents, agriculture and businesses are encouraged to attend one of four upcoming drought town hall meetings scheduled this month to learn about the drought, receive an update on water supply conditions and hear from local organizations about water conservation rebate programs. Several dry years combined with the driest year of record in 2013 have culminated in drought conditions across the region. The meetings are co-hosted by the Sonoma County Water Agency, Sonoma Resource Conservation District, County of Sonoma, Cities of Cloverdale and Healdsburg, members of the Sonoma-Marin Saving Water Partnership, including the City of Santa Rosa, City of Rohnert Park, City of Petaluma, and the Town of Windsor. Meeting participants can expect to meet water supply, conservation and regulatory officials to discuss the drought and ongoing efforts to provide relief to our community. Informational tables will provide conservation materials, such as water wise gardening brochures, applications for water use efficiency rebate programs and much more.

Below is a listing of the town hall meetings:
