12:09 pm
drought and extend that forward with a 15% voluntary reduction not only on residences but industrial commercial operations and agricultural operations. we are encouraging people to do common sense things like reducing amount of irrigation water on your lawns for example, reducing perhaps the time that you are in the shower, not eliminating that time. we are not trying to be oppressive. these are voluntary standards. we have laid out a list of ideas that include just taking a look at where leaks may be occurring on your property, taking the opportunity to update efficiency of shower heads as an example. when doing a load of laundry, make sure it is a full load. it helps with water consumption. dish washer. take a look and have a full load in the dish washer.
12:10 pm
you do those things and you also save money. it is an opportunity to save water and help us work through the drought conditions but voluntarily this is an opportunity to remind you of the opportunity to save money as well. saveourwater.com lays out a lot of ideas and specific strategies that we encourage you to take a look at. again, saveourwater.com to learn more about how you can save money and help us through these challenging drought conditions. that's the two orders that we are signing today, proclamations, state of emergency, and executive order which are in front of me. they may be in front of all of you with this wind in a second. i am mindful as i sign them to do so cautiously. i want to highlight my appreciation to local water agencies, to local counties, to the 40 million californians.
12:11 pm
we begin have been through these proclamations before and have come through them remarkably well because californians have taken these declarative directions, voluntary efforts, to heart and they've taken them very seriously. just specific to that, i want to note that we had mandatory water conservation efforts during the last drought. interestingly per capita we reduced water consumption by roughly 21% in the state between 2013 and 2016. we brought in that mind set into this drought and this gives us an advantage over the last drought. we are currently residential use in the state of california currently is 16% below where we were in 2013, as we go into this next drought. we also have been more effective and efficient in terms of water recycling,
12:12 pm
storage. we have made a substantial amount of progress on groundwater strategies to save drinking water, commitments, consolidations of small water agencies up and down the state. we are committing in addition working with the legislature $5.1 billion budget specific us surplus, 80 plus billion dollars operating surplus we are enjoying in the state we are in a position to put 5.1 billion to use that will allow us to have emergency opportunities as well as medium and longterm investments on water infrastructure up and down the state of california. so we are in a position that is a little bit more advantageous than the last time we went through a multi year drought. nonetheless, the sober reality is such that here we are again. and we will need to proceed
12:13 pm
with lessons learned from the last drought but with the benefits of those lessons now and the resources that we have not been afforded in the past. forward with the signing of these two drafts. we're going to figure this out. i will try to get this done. these are the actual tosight.tions so i n't wa you were watching governor newsom announcing today two executive actions in response to the drought emergency here in california. >> signing a proclamation for state of emergency and also executive order to encourage
