Drought conditions in California will be worsened by a current dearth of surplus water, and that coupled with a third straight dry year could mean exponentially bigger supply problems in 2014. (Sacramento Bee)
Any available statewide surpluses are being utilized now.
The California Department of Water Resources made the announcement late last week, along with the proviso that homeowners should turn off their sprinklers when it is raining.
The DWR also expressed concern about small water systems which rely on groundwater, suggesting the systems are not maintained well, and that groundwater levels are rarely if ever checked.
