Kern County farmers say water infrastructure is needed
On Aug. 3, the State Water Resources Control Board completely eliminated 2021’s surface water supplies for farms in much of the state. It has impacted farmers like John Moore III, who grows pistachios at Moore Farms in Arvin. … While California is prone to drought, the last reservoir in the state was completed in the 1980s. The state’s population has grown tremendously since then. Moore says the state wouldn’t be in this situation if more infrastructure was built.
