Governor Convenes Drought Task Force
Governor Brown convened a drought task force to help determine whether a statewide drought declaration is warranted.  The task force includes staff from state water, agriculture and emergency services agencies who will meet weekly to help strengthen drought preparations and advise the Governor. 
The first Sierra Nevada snow survey conducted by the California Department of Water Resources on January 3 showed the snowpack at 20 percent of average across the mountain range that serves as a crucial water bank for the state.  This, coupled with the low rainfall predicted by the National Weather Service, makes 2014 the third straight drought year.
