NOTICE: Updates to the Household Water Supply Shortages Reporting Website

From the Department of Water Resources’ Sustainable Groundwater Management Office:  

Recent website updates to the Household Water Supply Shortages reporting page make it easier to report household water shortages such as dry domestic wells.

California residents who are not served by a public water system are encouraged to report water shortages, which helps state and local agencies track drought impacts on household water supplies. This upgrade to the My Dry Water Supply website creates a more user-friendly online experience.

In addition to allowing users to submit their own reports, the site includes resources for domestic well owners, up-to-date reporting statistics and provides access to the statewide dataset. Submitted reports provide valuable information that help state and local agencies identify where assistance may be needed. Well owners who are interested in financial assistance will be directed to available resources as well.

To report a water supply shortage in English or in Spanish, go to the MyDryWaterSupply webpage (
