Gallons v Acre Feet

Sep 30, 2018




















Kristi Diener
Whenever I see an article that talks about water in billions of gallons instead of acre-feet, a red flag goes up. It should for you too. It's obvious the author is trying to trick us into feeling wowed by a larger sounding number for some reason. The State Water Resources Control Board uses this trick frequently. Just so you're aware, in this headline, 31 billion gallons is actually 95,135 acre-feet. I know because I used 30,000,000,000 nanoseconds of my time to convert it.😉
