The California Department of Water Resources protects, conserves, develops, and manages California's water resources. The department collects data on water supplies and water demands to develop plans to help meet the state's water needs. Operating and maintaining the State Water Project is al so a departmental responsibility.


The department is mandated to consider all water management alternatives from a balanced statewide, regional, and local perspective and to operate a statewide flood forecasting, warning, and monitoring system to provide flood control workers in emergencies. And finally, it monitors the construction of dams and supervises the safety of the construction and operation of dams.
