The California Department of Water Resources is asking the public to prepare for a possibly dry 2014, which could be the third dry year in a row.
State officials say 2012 was the 25th-driest year on record and even though 2013 started off with more rain than usual, it eventually dried out.
Dry conditions are detrimental to crops and lead to increased fire danger.
The DWS says that if things remain the same in 2014, the impacts will be felt state-wide. Community events have been scheduled from September into December up and down the state.
The Sacramento-area meeting will take place Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 10 a.m.
