If California no longer has a drought, what does that mean?


From OaklandNorth – Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Coalition response...The Governor’s declaration that California is no longer in a drought means that water supplies this year have improved to satisfy most water needs. Some farmers are receiving reduced water deliveries this year, resulting in unplanted acres and some farm worker jobs going unfilled.

Everyone needs to understand that declaration only refers to this year and not future years. History has proven that our state will once again be gripped in the throes of a drought. That is why it is important to increase both storage and conveyance to help offset California’s water needs in dry years.
