California Drought

California’s Drought on Satellite Technology

January 16, 2016

After four years of drought, California is receiving plenty of rain, but according to experts, it’s causing other problems. Flooding and mudslides are a couple of California’s major challenges right now, and according to Forbes, California’s about to be hit by one of the strongest El Nino events in a long time.

Farmers are struggling with the non-existing snow pack on the Sierra mountains, which will affect their reservoir storage to cover agricultural needs through the dry season. “Increasingly, farmers have been tapping into ground water,” says Forbes. “Using existing or new wells,  this can only be a temporary solution because the aquifers are being drawn down making pumping costs higher and risking salt water intrusions.”
