And why it's too late for the rain.

And yet "only a handful of cities have enacted mandatory water restrictions"?

MEANWHILE....greedy developers are planning massive housing projects--without any thought to where this water will come from.

Noted, signed and shared. Scam flagged!

Yeah, and they're still planning to start, if they haven't already, fracking. I mean, what are people thinking really. They won't be satisfied until they have destroyed every bit of drinking water on the planet. I'm so damn disgusted.

I live one hour north from San Francisco, CA. In our Sonoma County,
plans are already up for water conservation in some of our small towns.
This is the earliest I have ever seen for plans to put water rationing in place.

The reservoirs are in bad shape. The photo in the visit site Mother Jones article
is accurate. The reservoirs are extremely low, and/or, dry.

Many people, friends have been practicing water conservation for many years.
It is not enough. More people need to conserve more than ever.

What worries me is that fracking may be initiated and started up in CA. Fracking
uses enormous amounts of water and after it has been used for the fracking
process, it becomes toxic and undrinkable, unusable.

We need to conserve water for the people and our agriculture, crops. Prices, for
foods, will skyrocket adding to the already poor economy especially for the poor people.

Not a rosy picture at all for CA. Other western states are also facing its own
problems as well regarding "water".

ty, Cal.

They could have avoided this, have being born and raised in cal for 40 years - a few months .
They did not want to build the plants to turn sea water into useable water for the consumers.
Now they say it would cost to much .
Had they done it they would not be in this dire predicament . My brother and I discuss this over the weekend.

Environmentalist, feared it would kill the fish , but now they are going to kill everyone on land .
We must make a compromise at some point.

In this dire situation, I can't believe they are considering fracking, which uses millions of gallons of water, then ruins the groundwater.
Also, most people in Calif. feel they must have water-hungry lawns. There are many other options for ground cover. Mandatory water restrictions are only a short-term solution.
