Escondido enjoys a semi-arid climate, which means we receive an average 7 to 9 inches of rain each year. Approximately 70% of our drinking water is imported from northern California and the Colorado River, and 30% comes from our local lakes. As water availability becomes more scarce, it is imperative that we use water efficiently.
