Drought as "new normal"


This first-ever Berkeley Resilience Strategy was developed during one of the most severe, multiyear droughts on record in California. Prolonged drought may in fact be the new normal for our state and region. Transitioning to this new normal and continuing to flourish in a drier climate require that our community continue to conserve water and treat it as the valuable, scarce resource that it is and innovate and diversify Berkeley’s water supply.
