As a region, Sonoma County is experiencing a severe multi-year drought with rainfall and water storage levels sinking to historic lows. On April 21, Governor Gavin Newsom proclaimed a state of emergency in Sonoma county due to drought conditions in the Russian River Watershed. Since the Governor’s proclamation, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors also proclaimed a drought emergency and all regional water suppliers have since implemented mandatory reduction from their customers.
