The Drought Resilience Interagency and Partners (DRIP) is an opportunity for representatives from a wide range of water-related interested parties to be a part of a standing interagency drought and water shortage task force for the state of California.

This task force will facilitate proactive state planning and coordination for pre-drought planning, drought emergency response and post-drought recovery; develop strategies to enhance collaboration; and develop plans, responses and strategies in a way that considers all water users.

In an effort to protect drinking water wells, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) is incentivizing growers to limit groundwater pumping with the LandFlex Program.

Using a $25 million grant awarded by the State of California, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) is working with the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) to distribute these funds to small- and mid-sized farms (farmers with a 3-year average Adjusted Gross Income of $2.5 million or less).
