[/quote][/quote]Right now the state has only about one year of water supply left in its reservoirs, and our strategic backup supply, groundwater, is rapidly disappearing. California has no contingency plan for a persistent drought like this one (let alone a 20-plus-year mega-drought), except, apparently, staying in emergency mode and praying for rain.[quote]

Canada has lots, but the U.S. ain't getting any. Shouldn't they be looking for groundwater sources and thinking aquaducts?

Quote:NEW YORK (MainStreet) — While President Obama vetoed the Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline with great fanfare, Canadian politicians and agencies have for decades more quietly blocked water pipeline and diversion schemes. Pressure on Canada could grow as the U.S. enters an election year with recent droughts in giant electoral powerhouses like Texas and California, and across the jobs-generating Sun Belt and bread basket Plains States.

Expensive water.

Irrigation needs to be completely redone. In a warm arid place like California half of the irrigation water evaporates before it hits the ground 13.gif

Outrage boils over as B.C. government plans to sell groundwater for $2.25 per million litres

Quote:Polak said: “We don’t sell water. We charge administration fees for the management of that resource.”

That rate of $2.25 per million litres — the highest industrial rate in the new price structure — means Nestlé will pay the government $596.25 a year for 265 million litres.
