California Drought


February 6, 2014

It appears that the California State Water Project, a core portion of California’s water system, will not have any water to provide either or farmers or cities this year due to the severe drought. This decision will be reviewed each month.  That heavy rainfalls will still come to mitigate the extremity of the situation is still a hope.  The next 3 months are seasons when significant rains can fall.
The announcement does not mean that communities will have no water this summer. But it does mean that What this means is that each region is mostly on its own now as regards water supplies.  Each area will need to use water from local reservoirs and wells.  This may force serious recycling efforts.
The biggest impact will be on the central valley’s agriculture.  It is likely that hundreds of thousands of acres will go unplanted, which will have a strong negative impact on employment, food costs and the overall economy.
In the Bay area, the East Bay and Silicon receive 80 percent of their water each year from the State Water Project.  So they will experience the greatest impact.
