Please Continue Your Conservation Efforts

No new water is expected to be available from the State Water Project or Lake Cachuma next year. But, wise planning and careful conservation means Montecito has enough purchased and stored water to last from now until early 2017.

Real Time Rainfall Gauge

New Rainfall Gauge compares the rainfall each month in Montecito against our historical data collected since 1920. The data is graphed every month. See how our drought has affected the data for the past three years and what actual rainfall in inches should be for each month. Visit the Rainfall page.
