Rain Rain Go Away

Dec 09, 2019

California's new theme song is, "Rain, Rain Go Away". Here is how our water supply has been managed the first week of December: A year's supply of freshwater for 2,569,380 people is now in the Pacific Ocean. This water will not replenish aquifers or arrest subsidence that is causing infrastructure to sink (like the Friant-Kern Canal). It will not be added to the water tables that prevent the degradation of drinking-water quality for all people (not just those in disadvantaged areas). It will not be securely stored in reservoirs in case another span of back-to-back dry spells are in our future. It will not aid in SGMA compliance that will lead to more than a half-a-million acres of the most productive farmland on the planet from sitting idle without a crop. #CaDeservesBetter
