At a Glance:
California is now facing its most serious drought since the mid-2010s.
Mountain snowpack has already melted, before replenishing reservoirs.
The next widespread rain and mountain snow is months away.

The California drought, part of the most expansive western U.S. drought this century, is locked in place for awhile.
The impacts from this slow-motion disaster are only beginning to ratchet up as we head into the state's dry season.
Here are some facts on the status of the drought, the factors that triggered it, and the impacts already being felt.

The Most Dire Category

According to the latest Drought Monitor analysis as of May 25, not only is the entire state of California in drought, but 26% of the state is in "exceptional drought", the highest category.
The last exceptional drought in California was January, 2017, on the tail end of a multi-year drought. It was considered the worst in parts of the state in 450 years.

Wild fires out of control. Droughts. Blackouts. Whales dying on the beaches. Cities full of homeless, feces, and urination.

Maybe someone is trying to tell them something? What could be next? :thinking

California needs to get rid of Governor Nuisance. :nod
@Chris
maybe you have something there since now this STUPID liberal led state has passed state legislation to legalize psychedelic drugs. .
Seems theres More legislation for legalizing what has been criminal than enforcement of law against criminal.

Pray so they do not serve alone. Ephesians 6:10-20
California is trying to get more water from other states, which could create water problems, including shortages and much higher prices, for these (and other) states (domino effect)
If California needs more water, it needs to build desalinization plants and get more water from the ocean, reduce nonessential water consumption, increase water reclaimation/recycling/reuse, and improve efficiency of water, sewage, and electric utilities :tappingfoot

No different than a family tightening its belt to stay within its means/what is available/good stewardship.

From March 18, 2016

As the murky relationship between water allocation and availability continues, the environmentalist groups’ strong opposition to new storage projects has created a self-imposed water storage problem. The lack of water storage has resulted in nearly 70 percent of the water that enters the Delta being flushed back into the ocean. During the past three years of the man-made drought, California has flushed more than 2 million acre-feet of water (or 652 billion gallons) back into the ocean due to water policies inhibiting the irrigation infrastructure from operating at full capacity, along with a major deficiency of water storage facilities.

It does not appear to me that they would catch on if Jesus Christ sounded from heaven telling them to straighten up. Those in charge seem dead set in their ways. It is amazing. I can’t think of any other way to explain how I see it.

I feel sorry for the Christians in that state.

Also we should have our own fleet of flying water tankers ready to go at a moments notice. For the amount of damage that fires cost yearly it would be cost effective to have our own flying fire eating tankers...:fireman:super:saluteflag:scoregood...they can also use the navy ships to provide drinking water for land use because they also have desalinization units aboard.

from google...
Today, navy fleets of about 50 ships have the capacity to desalinate more than a million gallons of water a day. Cities with large naval bases, like San Diego, are looking at ways to use their fleets' desalination capacity to supplement their municipal water systems in times of drought and other emergencies.

The so called California drought has had the most ridiculous water conservation policies that have almost been Like we are to blame for the water shortage. notices were sent out to residents that we were only allowed to use a limited amount water a day which would limit how much clothes we washed how long showers we could take, If you have a big family the limited gallons of water allowed would be used up fast. If we used in excess there would be a penalty. looked for a link because it's too crazy to believe.


California Passes Insane New Law Limiting Personal Water Usage With Massive Fines (VIDEO)​

Published January 3, 2020 at 2:05am

Governor Gavin Newsom has signed a law which just went into effect that limits personal water usage. People can even be hit with massive fines if they exceed their limit by doing laundry and taking a shower on the same day.

In California, it’s legal to sleep on the sidewalk, but taking a shower and doing laundry on the same day might cost you $1000. $10,000 during a drought https://t.co/lhHnIXuoNN

Bet the rich and connected with pools and estates are exempt or have special dispensation :mad

What about the water parks, Disneylnad, etc.?

Businesses and manufacturing? Agriculture?

What if one has a well? Is it legal to collect rain water? Is it legal to reclaim and reuse one's gray water?

You're absolutely right and the preceding article above that I posted says
"During the past three years of the man-made drought, California has flushed more than 2 million acre-feet of water (or 652 billion gallons) back into the ocean due to water policies inhibiting the irrigation infrastructure from operating at full capacity, along with a major deficiency of water storage facilities."
So they can just pour out hundreds of billions of water back into the ocean just because there was lack of storage space that we could have used but we had to conserve our water so we weren't allowed to have it.

It may seem contrary to common sense, but the simple fact is that the ecological disasters that are dogging California are the direct result of policies directed by ecological groups. The ecologists have actually harmed the state's ecology. In their human wisdom, they think they can manage nature better than nature. But man is not smart enough to fully understand the intricacies of how this world works at ALL levels. God alone is capable of that. But man in his foolish pride thinks that he knows better. And the ecology in California 2021 is the result.

Environmentalists Destroyed California’s Forests​

(Excerpts from article)

Expect these fires to fuel a new round of legislation containing urban growth while mandating suburban densification, with increased rationing of energy and water.

Expect the “climate emergency” to accelerate in synergistic lockstep with the pandemic emergency and the anti-racism emergency. Expect all three of these emergencies to become issues of public health, thereby eliminating inconvenient constitutional roadblocks to swift action.

If an honest history of California in the early 21st century is ever written, the verdict will be unequivocal. Forests that thrived in California for over 20 million years were allowed to become overgrown tinderboxes. And then, with stupefying ferocity, within the span of a few decades, they burned to the ground. Many of them never recovered.

This epic tragedy was the direct result of policies put in place by misguided environmentalist zealots, misinformed suckers who sent them money, and the litigators and lobbyists they hired, who laughed all the way to the bank.

California wasn't around 20 million years ago :tappingfoot


According to Shulman (Sequence of Events in the Old Testament):
Creation (Year 0) in 3760 BC, and Noah's Flood (Year 1056) in 2704 BC

According to Ussher (Annals of the World), Creation was in 4004 BC

According to the Institute for Creation Research (icr.org), the Earth is approximately 6000 years old.

According to Answers in Genesis (aig.org), the Earth is approximately 6000 years old.

California Releasing Water from Reservoirs, Claiming Drought Conditions​

The state has wasted enough water to meet the needs of 80 million people for a year

By Katy Grimes, April 7, 2021 4:13 pm

AccuWeather reports a snow survey in California revealed that the state only received about 50% of its average precipitation during the 2021 water year, tying it for its third-driest on record.

As for water storage, AccuWeather says:

Lake Shasta, California’s largest surface-level reservoir, recorded 65% of what is considered average.

Lake Oroville, the largest reservoir within the State Water Project, a 700-mile-long water storage and delivery system, is at 53% of average. The State Water Project supplies water for over 27 million people and irrigates about 750,000 acres of farmland.

Statewide, Sean De Guzman, chief of snow surveys for the California Department of Water Resources, said the largest reservoirs are holding around half of their total capacity. When current snowpack melts, reservoirs in the state are still only expected to be filled up to 58% of average capacity.

What they don’t say is that the state has been letting water out of reservoirs across California for months now. And it’s not going to farmers, growers, ranchers or urban use. Environmental policy says the water “flows” from reservoirs are necessary to produce a rebound of endangered Delta smelt and Chinook salmon. However, these policies are a failure as neither species have been collected in all of the latest trawling surveys, where they spend several days a month searching in more than 200 spots. This practice of releasing water and hoping fish improve, has been unsuccessful for nearly 30 years, according to Kristi Diener, a California water expert and third-generation Central Valley farmer. Both species are close to extinction.

Meanwhile, as the reservoir water flows are not saving fish at all, the State of California has known we are heading into a multi year drought. But northern reservoir managers have continued to release water through the Delta, and into the Pacific Ocean anyway.
