Water supply

There goes the water


From Fresno Bee - Thursday, Jan. 12, 2012

Coalition response...Water that moves through the Friant-Kern Canal is delivered to more than a million acres of farmland along the 151-mile-long canal from Millerton Lake to Bakersfield. That water grows crops including citrus, peaches, nectarines, almonds, walnuts, vegetables and much, much more. It takes a reliable supply of water to grow the crops that feed people here in California and around the world. Groundwater recharge from irrigation activities also helps serve the water supply needs of many rural communities throughout the Friant system. While Los Angeles may benefit from Friant water, it is more accurately due to the bountiful food supplies it receives thanks to the farmers and their efforts to produce food for people who can't or don't grow it for themselves.
