September 04, 2014

Drought is a fact of life in California and across the West, and we cannot know if the drought will end next year, or whether we're facing many more dry years. With climate change creating the conditions for longer and more frequent droughts, we cannot afford to be wasting water and money on 19th and 20th century water habits -- like building more dams. Instead, California should take charge of our water future by investing in 21st century sustainable water solutions right now.
