Unlinke the rest of California, San Diego’s water levels are at 99% of normal, says The San Diego Union-Tribune. According to the data collected by the San Diego County Water Authority, the county has had to store an additional 13.7 billion gallons of water in reservoirs in order to comply with Gov. Brown’s water cuts.
Where is all this extra water being stored?
“It’s all going into the San Vicente Reservoir, where ratepayers recently funded a $416 million expansion [where more water can be stored later on].”
What about pumping or selling the water to those in need?
“‘The mechanisms aren’t currently in place to allow for water transfers or sales,” spokesman Mike Lee said.'”
