PREVIOUS BOARD/BOARD COMMITTEE ACTIONS:
The BOS received a presentation on April 12, 2021 about the current drought conditions. On April 20, 2021, the Board of Supervisors adopted a Resolution declaring a local emergency due to drought condition.

SUMMARY OF REQUEST:
Mendocino County is in the midst of an historic drought with the water levels in our reservoirs and wells at extremely low levels. Subsequent to the Board's adoption of an initial declaration of a local emergency, Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency due to drought conditions in the Russian River watershed, and the State Water Resources Control Board has notified certain junior water rights holders of a need to limit water diversions in order to preserve drinking water availability.

Drought conditions continue to affect the County, and the Executive Office requests that the Board of Supervisors adopt this resolution renewing and extending the local emergency in the County due to drought conditions.

ALTERNATIVE ACTION/MOTION:
Provide direction to staff.
