Sustainable Water for Fresno’s Future

Water supply in the City of Fresno is critical to our health, livelihood and everyday living. Business, industry, universities and families enjoy a high quality of life and vibrant community here in Fresno, thanks to the availability of water.

Even without the current drought which is endangering water supplies throughout the state, our groundwater supply is declining at an alarming rate. In fact, over the last 80 years, groundwater levels have dropped more than 100 feet. This is a problem since the majority of Fresno’s water comes from the ground through wells. Thanks to planning and investment in our water system, Fresno has a solution.
