Santa Rosa Water-Drought

Posted on: December 9, 2021

[ARCHIVED] Water Supply Update - December 9, 2021


Our watershed continues to experience historically low levels in our local reservoirs, Lake Sonoma and Lake Mendocino. As of December 6, 2021, Sonoma Water is reporting storage in Lake Sonoma at 49% and Lake Mendocino at 36% of target water supply. Since October 1, 2021, Santa Rosa has received 14 inches of rain, but additional and significant rainfall is needed to replenish local reservoirs. On average, Santa Rosa receives 34 inches of rain each year.     

As the drought persists, it is important that the community continue to keep saving water. During the month of November, Santa Rosa achieved a 25% savings in water use when compared to November 2020. Cumulatively, for the months of July through November, Santa Rosa’s community-wide water savings is 23%, exceeding the 20% water savings target. Thank you for doing your part to save water.
