Water Needs Assessment and Agricultural Loss Survey for 2021 Crop Year

The Sonoma County Department of Agriculture is conducting an agricultural loss survey to determine the extent and nature of crop loss due to the drought conditions in Sonoma County during the 2020-21 rainy season.  This season runs from October 2020 through April 2021.  The results of this survey may lead to additional assistance being made available to Sonoma County Producers.

Water Needs Assessment

As the drought conditions in Sonoma County continue, it is important for our water suppliers and county leadership to have a clear understanding of the current and projected water needs of our community.  This short survey will help inform them on water demand to ensure the agricultural community has enough water supply for their livestock and business needs.  Please help inform us as to the needs of our agriculture industries with respect to water and water hauling.

Note:  This additional water hauling needs assessment survey is voluntary and your individual responses will not be publicly shared.
