With Dry Taps and Toilets, California Drought Turns Desperate
J Thoendell stashed this in California
Now in its third year, the state’s record-breaking drought is being felt in many ways: vanishing lakes and rivers, lost agricultural jobs, fallowed farmland, rising water bills, suburban yards gone brown. But nowhere is the situation as dire as in East Porterville, a small rural community in Tulare County where life’s daily routines have been completely upended by the drying of wells and, in turn, the disappearance of tap water.
I do dislike seeing sprinklers still watering grass all around Silicon Valley.
Yes, why have Silicon Valley lawn owners not curtailed their sprinkling at all??
Some of them aren't even rich. :)
