I’m surprised that nobody has put in some kind of water pipeline from east to west yet. We always have more than our fair share of rain, and they never have enough.
Well they did always say that water would eventually be the oil of the 21st century....
There have already been lawsuits over private companies bottling water out of lakes that are in or that border NYS, I think, and I suppose that's just the front edge of what's coming.
And that's not all. Groundwater is now threatened in oil and gas drilling states by abandonment of very old deep-drilled oil and gas wells, without plugging them w/ cement, which in itself is not a long term solution to corrosion of the piping. LA Times just ran a piece on it the other day. California agriculture is what lands a lot of food on not just sunny Cal plates... and they're gonna need those ground water aquifers.
Thousands of wells across California, including many near residential areas, have been left inactive for decades and are in need of cleanup
