California’s new drought rules: will they be enough to halt the ‘alarming challenges’ ahead?
With little hope of reprieve ahead of the warming summer months, demand for water in parts of drought-stricken California is outpacing supply. The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California declared a water shortage emergency last week for areas that rely on the State Water Project…. The move is a marked shift in a drought disaster that’s only expected to deepen with warmer and drier days ahead. Now in the third year of the drought, supplies across the region are becoming increasingly strained. Experts say more restrictions across the state are likely as the effects of climate crisis unfold faster than expected.
