Wasted Water

Jun 12, 2019

Month after month, California continues to dump water to the sea. This chart shows how much freshwater went out through the Delta, to the S.F. Bay, and to the sea in the last month. Only a fraction of this water was needed to prevent saltwater intrusion into the Delta. California's drought of tomorrow is being manufactured today. This water will not stop subsidence, recharge groundwater, improve water quality in disadvantaged areas, grow food, or be used in our homes. California wasted it. If your assembly person or senator is a democrat, call them and email them, and don't stop. Demand legislation to build new water storage! The republicans aren't voting against building new water storage folks. The dems haven't built any new water storage in 40 years, the same amount of time they have held the majority in Sacramento. Our lack of water security is on them, and we're all about to feel the sting of the new law that makes a -41\% water reduction mandatory, regardless of wet or dry year. Call them. Email them. Don't stop. Find your reps here: http://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov
