Success: Statewide Restrictions Placed on Water Use During Drought


Target: California Governor Jerry Brown

Goal: Thank the governor for taking action to conserve water in the midst of a severe drought.

California is now entering its fourth year in a severe drought and Governor Jerry Brown has finally placed proper restrictions on water use. New policies will ensure the state is only using water in the most efficient manner rather than mindlessly wasting this precious resource. Thank California Governor Jerry Brown for taking a stand for our environment and the state by implementing very reasonable restrictions that will have a huge impact.

It is estimated the state will run out of water in one year if consumption continues at the current rate. The Governor has finally stepped in to ensure the state is acting in accordance with new regulations. Several activist groups, including those at ForceChange, have significantly contributed to this positive change by placing immense pressure on the governor to ensure water levels do not continue to drop.

These new regulations will place restrictions on campuses, golf courses, cemeteries, and new housing developments. A consumer rebate program will also be implemented as incentive for residents to switch out old appliances for more modern, water and energy saving models. The state will also offer assistance to residents living in areas where wells have already run dry, ensuring they are relocated to an area with running water.

Please sign this petition to thank California Governor Jerry Brown for placing necessary regulations on water use that will have a positive impact on the entire state.


Dear Governor Brown,

In the midst of California’s worst drought, I was most pleased to see the state taking necessary action to protect our water supply. It is so important for everyone to work together to ensure we’re all left with a reasonable amount of water while remembering not to use it where unnecessary. Thank you for taking action to maintain our water supply and protect citizens.

Though many citizens have been doing their best to conserve water, it seems it still isn’t enough and certain parts of the state are consuming more water than ever. This is where the government must step in and regulate use in order to ensure California is properly supplied with fresh water for many years to come.

Much of California has already expressed their pleasure with new regulations and truly appreciates your continued acknowledgment of this severe drought. This is a time when everyone must work together to create a positive change.

Thank you so much for taking action in the midst of this drought and ensuring California citizens are properly supplied with our most precious resource.
