As part of the State’s effort to make conservation “a California Way of life”, the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) was provided funding to measure landscape area for the California retail urban water suppliers using remote sensing technology.  Since this is a new approach to land area measurement, DWR started the project with a two-agency pilot measuring the landscape area for Padre Dam Water District and the City of Santa Rosa.  At the May 16 workshop, DWR will discuss the landscape area definitions that were used in classifying landscapes in the pilot and the overall measurements results.
