[ARCHIVED] Serious Drought Intensifies…

California is entering into a fourth straight year of severe drought conditions. Last year was the hottest on record, and this followed the driest year on record in 2013. While winter storms have brought much needed rain across the state, the warmer weather has also reduced the snowpack in the Sierra’s to 19% of the annual average. This means that there will be less snow melt to sustain the state’s water needs during the warmer summer months. This month, a NASA scientist stated that California only has one year of water in storage. In April, the State Water Resources Board is expected to announce mandatory water cutbacks that are expected to take effect in July.
