The Department of Water Resources (DWR) is responsible for managing and protecting California’s water. DWR works with other agencies to benefit the state’s people, and to protect, restore and enhance the natural and human environments.


Native American Day Celebrates Water

"Water is Life – Water is Sacred" was the theme of the 47th annual California Native American Day observance at the State Capitol on September 26. DWR offered water conservation tips at the event sponsored by the California State Tribal Liaisons. Traditional Indian dances, cultural exhibits and educational booths highlighted the day in which some 50 state, federal and other agencies participated.
