Are we using too much water in California to be sustainable?

    Currently, the majority of California’s water problems stem from the lack of water in Southern California (areas such as Los Angeles and San Diego).  Some scientists estimate that CA may run out of water in just 20 years.  The majority of water shortage issues stems partially from use but mostly from lack of resources and distribution issues.  Because CA is a desert region but with areas that are irrigation heavy, more needs to be done to better manage existing water resources (such as behavioral changes and landscaping modification) as well as increasing use of existing sources of water (such as recycled waste water) instead of relying on imported sources as is currently done.

    A great book regarding this subject is Cadillac Desert: The American West and Its Disappearing Water.  It goes over the history of water use and water politics in the American West.  It’s incredibly interesting!
