The Dry Year Program was an emergency program developed by the California State Water Resources Control Board, Division of Water Rights, in response to the 1975-1977 drought.
The objectives of the Drought 77 Dry Year Program were to identify critical drought impacted areas in Northern and Central California, to provide information to water users in these areas in regard to water conservation, to assure that the limited supply available was used in accordance with lawful rights, and to take enforcement action against violations of permit and license conditions, illegal diversions and waste or unreasonable use of water.
