California Enacts Severe Water Restrictions

I’m going to have to work on the economics of packing up Lake Michigan water and selling it in L.A.

PHILLIPS, Calif. (Reuters) – California Governor Jerry Brown, in his most sweeping action to combat a devastating multi-year drought, ordered residents and businesses on Wednesday to cut water use by 25 percent in the first mandatory statewide reduction in California history.

The cuts mean industrial parks and golf courses must immediately cut a quarter of their water use on ornamental turf, and homeowners will be pressed to replace thirsty lawns with drought-tolerant landscaping. Farmers, already making do with less water for irrigation, will be exempt.

The move comes as California’s snowpack, which generally provides about a third of the state’s water, is at its lowest level on record in a sign the state’s drought, now entering its fourth year, is far from over.

    Once they finally figure out that they can’t live in a desert where do they move? That’s the part that scares me.

    Why does that scare you?

    If they can build oil pipelines, why not water pipelines?
    They certainly would be easier to build than oil and gas pipelines.

    The Hollywood crazy train would scare me if it moved to Midwest…Britany Spears, Lindsey Lohan, Rosie, Whoopie, either Hilton, and especially Miley Cyrus…just to name a few.
